    The Government proposes to reboot the work of the Economic Security Bureau. The relevant draft law was adopted at a meeting on 29 December and will be submitted to the Verkhovna Rada. This was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.

    "We propose that only the ESB and the NABU should have the authority to raise the issue of conducting inspections of financial and economic activities of businesses, regardless of their form of ownership. We also propose to exclude the National Police and the Security Service of Ukraine from the list of state financial control bodies," the Prime Minister said.

    The Government is also proposing a new procedure for the election of the ESB director, with international partners involved in the process. These changes, according to Denys Shmyhal, are aimed at strengthening the rule of law and improving the investment climate in our country.

    In addition, the Government continues the corporatisation reform at Energoatom. Today, Energoatom was established as a joint-stock company, which is 100% owned by the state. 

    "The corporatisation of Energoatom in accordance with the best international standards will strengthen the quality of management, transparency and accountability of the company. It also opens up new opportunities for the development of our nuclear power industry and partnership with global companies," the Prime Minister stressed.

    In particular, the Government approved a new charter, regulations on the Supervisory Board and regulations on the principles of its formation.
