Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman considers necessary to draft a recovery programme for Ukraine in synergy with international partners, thereby providing an opportunity to expedite vital changes. He said during a conference "Cheering and Steering: Ukraine Reforms Reloaded" in Brussels.

The Head of Government noted that in 2014 the European Union and international donors had offered Ukraine a "Marshall Plan". In February of 2015 there was planned a large donor conference, and was being prepared a recovery plan for Ukraine.

As then Vice Prime Minister in the Government of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Volodymyr Groysman in cooperation with European colleagues developed a step by step plan to trigger the renewal of Ukraine. It was not realized because the planned conference never took place and much awaited decisions were not adopted.

"I consider that we should return to this issue. If a question arises how our friendly European partners can help – the answer is a clear plan of Ukraine's recovery. This means the "Marshall Plan", which we can create together, by joining efforts accelerate transformation, bring about change, restore the sectors that are weak nowadays", said Volodymyr Groysman.

According to him, reconstruction, retargeting, including of the economy, should be swift.
