decentralization is among top priority issues local authorities are facing. People
want to see a different quality of education, medicine, planning of
territories, social and administrative services in the regions. And using the
resources of regional and local budgets, consolidated communities can carry out
the above mentioned improvements. This was stated by Vice Prime Minister/
Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of
Ukraine Hennadii Zubko at a
congress of the Ukrainian association of local and regional authorities.
Such an example
appears the Slobozhanska consolidated community which
has been developing infrastructure from their local budget alone. Therefore, I
want to express my gratitude to the communities for implementation of
decentralization and effective use of the reform tools, underlined Hennadii Zubko.
tasks outlined by the Vice Prime Minister are as follows: the creation of a new
Ukrainian school which envisages the development of infrastructure, new roads, sports
grounds, out-of-school education. «Now we have a concept and within a week we
shall offer a complex approach to the implementation of such measures, that
provides for, first of all, the mobilization of all resources to address this issue.
These include the state subventions, and resources of regional and local
budgets, subventions of amalgamated territorial communities, State Regional
Development Fund, programs on sector decentralization », emphasized Hennadii Zubko.
economic growth of the country is directly connected with activity of local
authorities, development of small and medium-sized businesses. We will advance
our activity to improve welfare of Ukrainian citizens and promote regional
development», he summed up.
