Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman hopes that the existing pace of cooperation
between the Government and the Parliament in approving the necessary
socioeconomic and legal decisions will be preserved, and by the end of spring both
officials and parliamentarians will be able to approve the elaborated package
of changes in the economy and in the framework of the implementation of the
Association Agreement with the EU. The Head of Government said on air of one of
the national TV channels.
"Out of a package of 35 economic bills that we were presenting
together with the Parliament’s Speaker three have already been approved. In
addition, certain decisions included in the package of bills to ensure the
implementation of the Association Agreement with the European Union were adopted.
Rather a good result. I believe that the Parliament will prolong taking decisions
much needed for the people", the Prime Minister said.
In February of 2018 the Prime Minister in synergy with VR Speaker introduced
a package of 35 bills aimed to resolve five major economic challenges: to improve
the business climate, to facilitate access to finance and investment, to promote
innovation, to protect business, to ensure deregulation. Moreover,
in February the Heads of Government and Parliament presented the Road Map of
the legislative support of the implementation of the Association Agreement
between Ukraine and the European Union for 2018-2019. The Roadmap represents a
package of 57 draft laws covering such areas as security and defense, protection of
intellectual property, removal of customs barriers and technical barriers to trade,
sanitary and phytosanitary measures, improvement of
the investment climate, protection of the environment, etc.
