The key to Ukraine's success, its ability to overcome internal and external challenges, to solve social problems and to extinguish debts is a strong economy, rooting out shadow schemes that ruin industries and the service sector, and the filling of the state budget as a key source of funding for Government initiatives. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in his address to MPs at the Verkhovna Rada.
"The cornerstone of Ukraine's success is a strong economy. And depending on it we are building a new quality of life. We are fighting to root out dirty schemes because we need funds to fill the budget. Investment is essential - external, internal. We need transparent and honest privatization. Let’s not forget about the sphere of services, our exports - everything that provides us with added value", said Volodymyr Groysman.
He noted that most of the significant initiatives had been gathered in a large package of 35 bills submitted at the beginning of the session. Nine bills have been approved as a whole, five - in the first reading.
"We also should devote a new session to strengthening the economy, growth, and a strong future. We trigger an election campaign, but we have to demonstrate cohesion for sucessful decision-making. We have a chance to say that we work for the benefits of voters but not for the benefits of ballot. There are a lot of challenges, we can respond to those", the Prime Minister stressed.
He thanked the Parliament and personally to the Speaker Andrii Parubii for the manifestation of unity for the adoption of decisions on the Anticorruption Court and other bills.
"Over the next 15 months, we have the opportunity to make a lot of things right. We have big plans, we have the community demand. Our work - a real, responsible policy, when we are capable of consolidation – is what our future depends on. The future of a strong and wonderful Ukraine. I want to urge everyone to unity. First and foremost, to recover the contry from shadow schemes. It's an evil that makes the country poor", stressed Volodymyr Groysman. "Let's work honestly, openly. And when it is time to report, we will openly look into the eyes of citizens and talk about the concrete progress that we’ve achieved."
