The Government should adopt a list of investment programs and projects of regional development to be financed from the State Regional Development Fund, thus facilitating regions to settle urgent problems.

In particular, among the issues on the agenda of the Government session is the approval of the list of investment programs and regional development projects that can be implemented at the expense of the State Regional Development Fund in 2016, said the Head of Government.

"This implies real finance that is allotted to the regions in the framework of the state regional policy to solve a lot of pressing problems. In each region, in each city the problems are different. But at last there exists an absolutely transparent mechanism of funding these projects", emphasized Volodymyr Groysman.

The Prime Minister explained by giving an example of Rivne region, for the regional development of which there have been planned UAH 101 million of government investment, in particular to finance new boilers, central regional hospital, to complete the construction of a school and to build a kindergarten.

"There is sufficient number of such objects - hospitals, schools, roads, reconstruction objects, energy efficiency facilities throughout Ukraine. Now it is time to trigger this activity. We must approve the list of such objects to align with laws and to enable local authorities to embark on implementation of these projects", he said.

According to him, this would facilitate solving of social and economic issues, local problems and promote the creation of jobs.

"The Ukrainian society demands from us several things: systematic approach to work, efficient decisions and maximized results. I believe that the team which is present here in this hall, is capable to demonstrate it", emphasized Volodymyr Groysman, urging the Cabinet’s members to prolong quality and systemic work.
