The implementation of far-reaching reforms in the country requires time, resource and political consolidation, not idle talks, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman claimed, while addressing the Parliament.
"My policy is a policy of real actions, not empty words. We need time, strength, political unity to pay our debts, to make economy strong and not to tolerate any conditions that can worsen people's lives", the Head of Government noted.
The Prime Minister emphasized that he understands and just like an ordinary citizen, feels the price increase, sees the situation in the road industry, analyzes the tariff issue which is being tackled by an independent regulatory body – the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission of Ukraine.
"I am concerned about the price hike, but how we can stabilize prices? There are two ways. Administrative regulation, which has never been effective, or saturate the market with high-quality products. That's precisely why we are currently shaping large-scale support programs in the agricultural sector," Volodymyr Groysman stressed and drew attention to the fact that the implementation of abovesaid programs will contribute to the restoration of agricultural production and to the creation of jobs.
The Government applies the same approach to restoration of roads that have not been repaired for decades - at the time "when there was no war, and the economy was stable." I am not the one who will remain silent about the real state of affairs. I am the one who stand ready to solve the problem and I agree that the amount (of the work completed) is insufficient. People are still driving on bad roads. However, the situation will change in five years if this issue is properly addressed. It is essential to do work at a high standard ", the Prime Minister underscored.
