The Government has been and remains supportive of honest business through protecting its interests and adopting a reasonable regulatory policy, thereby providing acceptable conditions for development. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said during a meeting with business circles in Zakarpattya region, in particular representatives of enterprises with foreign investments.
The Head of Government stressed that Zakarpattya region enjoys a number of advantages for investors, hence it is crucial not just to attract resources, but also to provide opportunities for their growth.
"We need investments, a normal climate. We need smart regulations that will enable the country to develop. Our activities focus on deregulation issues through abolishing unnecessary things, creating mechanisms for industry support along the sectors. Meanwhile, we are well aware of the related issues - first of all, the judicial system. The Government is committed to support you, to support honest business", the Head of Government said.
The participants of the meeting noted that present Ukraine needs, apart from technologies, also a strategic vision of the development of personnel - first of all engineering personnel – starting with their training and ending with generating motivation to work in Ukraine. Entrepreneurs provided statistical data that Ukrainian scientists and skilled workers create up to 8-10% of GDP of major developed countries. That is why, entrepreneurs assured, the development policy should take into account the element of rational "national pragmatism" and protection of our potential, our capabilities and our people.
