The Government will support and protect the investors who are
going to create new jobs in the country and develop the national economy, Prime
Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman stressed at an extraordinary Cabinet’s
meeting on Friday, May 27.
"Attracting investment is one of the top priorities. Those
who today intend to invest in the development of the national economy, the
Government, each official will protect. Create new jobs for Ukrainians, and we,
the Government, will serve you for free and will do it honestly," said
Growing investment and generating
employment will trigger
the development of the national economy and improvement
of people’s incomes. However, it is crucial
to prevent the abuse by regulatory
authorities in this area, which hinders the development of businesses, said the
"We must achieve sustainable economic
growth, predictable currency exchange rate, predictable
and low unemployment rates. We have enormous potential. However,
now it is imperative to cut down to size anyone
who considers themselves influential in this life:
inspections, and all other tyrants. Not until
then we will restore the economy, then we will be able to protect
the owner, we will be able to protect investments, people will invest
in new jobs," said the Head of Government.
According to him, a person
who does his job should get real and fair wage. In this context,
Volodymyr Groysman assured: "The Government will spare no effort
to reform the labor market, and to
upgrade the process of training personnel,
to improve the quality of it.
Undoubtedly, boost of economy proves
possible through manufacturing, through services, through high added value and,
in fact, it is our principal objective.
The Prime Minister noted that the current
deficit of the Pension Fund amounts to UAH 145
billion. "145 billion hryvnyas, but where the funds are from?
These are the money belonging to Ukrainian citizens,
as someone does not pay, considering that it doesn't matter.
Therefore, the system must change," he said.
Volodymyr Groysman stressed that
the Government was engaged in solving urgent
problems, has the political will and advocates
a professional, but never populist approach to carrying
out necessary changes. "Our objective is to establish
high-quality economic framework and basing on
this to shape both economic policy and to reform social
policy", said the Prime Minister.
