Presently, the Government creates all the conditions to ensure constructive cooperation with the Committees of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Ukrainian Parliament members to adopt the laws necessary for the implementation of the Association Agreement. Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Hanna Onyshchenko announced at a round table discussion dedicated to the state of readiness for signing the Association Agreement with the EU in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine with the support of the EU delegation in Ukraine on March 26, 2015.

In her speech, Hanna Onyshchenko thanked the EU delegation in Ukraine for the constant support, coordination and expert assistance.

"European integration is actually a long, complex and rather technical process. The Government is responsible for drafting of the majority of acts in the European integration area, then submitted to the Parliament. And we are working hard in this direction", stressed the Minister.

Hanna Onyshchenko drew attention to the fact that the process of harmonization of Ukrainian legislation with Acquis communautaire has been organized at a high systematic level. Practically each session of the Government concerns approving plans for the implementation of the EU acts, which provide a clear roadmap for the ministries and agencies on the timing of drafting the acts and the contents. By now there have been adopted 80 implementation plans compliant with 120 EU legislation acts. Within the framework of the obligations under the Association Agreement there should be implemented over 350 acts of EU law, with 160 acts implemented in the next three years.

Apart from that, the Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers stressed that the Government Office for European integration within the Secretariat of the Cabinet of Ministers and deputy ministers for European integration are open to cooperation and there are no obstacles to the systematic work of the Government with the Verkhovna Rada committees, the public and experts.
