We must switch from the economy type from based on raw materials to that based on added value", the Prime Minister stressed.

He emphasized economic upturn could be least 5% a year. "What did we outline as growing points? Industrial production, infrastructure, investment, and hence protection of investors' rights and the development of public-private partnerships and export promotion, the Head of Government accentuated, we are now launchig far-reaching programs for the development of the agriculture sector both in the segment of food production and agricultural machinery. We encourage farmers to grow livestock population and use machinery produced in Ukraine".

According to the Prime Minister, the state defense order has already been approved. "It's not just financing the army. This is funding for science of warfare, in particular the development and implementation of new types of weapons. Moreover, the development of industrial parks is considered as a very promising sector.

I meet regularly with these young people - it is a very useful experience", Volodymyr Groysman underscored.
