On December 15, 2020, the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine - Minister for Strategic Industries of Ukraine Oleg Uruskyi met with the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Kingdom of Denmark to Ukraine Ole Egberg Mikkelsen.
Oleh Uruskyy informed the Ambassador about the plans to reform the defense industry of Ukraine, in particular the creation of holdings and corporatization.
"Reforming Ukraine's defense industry involves the creation of two holdings and the corporatization of enterprises. Meanwhile, we will implement reforms not for the sake of reforms, but to create a favorable business climate in the country," said the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine.
Oleh Uruskyy also outlined the steps taken by the Ministry in the framework of the implementation of the Law of Ukraine "On Defense Procurement", which should come into force next year.
During the meeting, the parties discussed cooperation between the countries.
"Ukraine is interested in developing partnership with the Kingdom of Denmark. The country's experience in wind power generation, development of high-tech industries, including radar ranging, as well as shipbuilding and the creation of a powerful fleet is useful for Ukraine," said Oleg Uruskyi.
In turn, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Kingdom of Denmark to Ukraine Ole Egberg Mikkelsen expressed readiness to develop cooperation between the two countries.
"Ukraine and Denmark are close partners. Denmark has always supported Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. After all, there is an understanding that if you are in danger, we are in danger. Denmark is ready to assist Ukraine in the reform process and develop cooperation between countries," noted Ole Egberg Mikkelsen.
