In October Kyiv is to host a second joint investment conference, and the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry will be officially opened. Such agreements were reached at a meeting of Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during his working visit to Germany on Monday, June 27.

At a joint press conference following the meeting with Angela Merkel, Volodymyr Groysman informed that the second joint investment conference and the launch of the German- Chamber of Commerce and Industry "will create a real and effective mechanism for strengthening economic ties between Ukraine and Germany."

The Prime Minister pointed out that Germany is a leader in terms of investing in Ukraine and urged German businesses to step up investment activity. "The message to German business is: we want your business in Ukraine to be successful," he said.

"The most important thing that should be done by the Government today is to ensure the national economic growth, an increase in incomes of people. We have a great potential. And I deem that the deepening of our relations in the economic sphere with Germany and the involvement of German business in investment and further investment in the Ukrainian economy is a key priority of our activity," Volodymyr Groysman emphasized.

The Prime Minister noted that the sides discussed prospects of cooperation in the economic sphere as well as actions of the newly formed Government of Ukraine.

Volodymyr Groysman informed the German Chancellor about the first steps of the Ukrainian Government aimed at achieving macro-economic stability of the state, particularly in the areas of deregulation, energy market reform, the beginning of the privatization of state enterprises and the civil service reform. According to him, the effective fight against corruption is on the agenda of the Government. Also the Ukrainian Parliament has launched the judicial reform, he said.

"These are those steps that will create the right conditions for the protection of human rights, protection of investments and normal, proper conditions for doing business in Ukraine," Volodymyr Groysman highlighted.
