"By now we can boast with 13 consecutive quarters of growth. But is it sufficient to get rid of the problems we have? Is that growing trend sufficient to ensure sustainability and predictability in order to succeed? No, it isn’t! We must advance faster. We must change the situation within the country. We have the demand for a quick change - people are right. But it is critical to change not only the decisions but also the decision-making system", stressed Volodymyr Groysman.
The PM stresses that Ukraine has suffered a number of crises, and we have not much time to multiply what we already have. That is why the electoral period is an opportunity to make decisions that will change the decision-making system. The key to success will be "the consistency of actions, mobility potential, speed of decision-making and the creation of a quality environment and a sufficient level of dialogue with the society and business."
"Our strategy is to ensure stable development through the growth of the economy, the accumulation of domestic resources, and the reduction of the debt burden. Our dialogue is of key importance since you (business people) are the customers of decision-making, the process necessary for easy business conduct in Ukraine", said Volodymyr Groysman. "We can prove to ourselves and to the whole world that Ukraine is not just a spot on the map, but a beautiful European country with a population of 45 million."
