http://www.kmu.gov.ua/img/1x1.gifI believe that we will get enough courage up to approve both the budget and tax changes, to create new jobs and to allow Ukraine’s further development. Avoiding politicking and hollow statements, but exceptionally by implementing gradual right and effective reforms", said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk in Parliament before the draft budget and tax changes were introduced on Thursday, December 17.

"We believe that the Ukrainian Parliament is eager to stabilize the Ukrainian economy, so the law of Ukraine on the state budget, which we will finalize together, will be adopted before the end of the current year", stressed the Head of Government.

He appealed to the MPs: "We can represent different political forces. We can have different visions of how Ukraine should develop. But I believe that we have a common goal - the development of Ukrainian economy, creating new jobs, ensuring social justice and gradual economic growth."

The Prime Minister stressed that he fully supported the stance of the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada and parliamentary factions to establish in Parliament a relevant working group responsible for budgetary and tax legislation: "Together with the officials we will visit you here every day in order to discuss each article and each complicated issue that Ukrainian MPs have, but the most important thing is to find a solution."

He noted that every year, when discussing the draft budget "there is a lively and long-lasting political debate on which budget should be adopted": "We highly appreciate the position of members of the Ukrainian Parliament about the need to use an exceptionally transparent approach in the formation of the state budget, and the Government stands for that. In the walls of the Ukrainian Parliament, as it has always been during all years of Ukrainian independence, we will complete the draft, balance and approve it joining the efforts. It is our common responsibility and we will fulfill it together".
