At the expense of state support for regional development, in particular of the State Regional Development Fund and the resource planned for subvention for consolidated communities, in 2017 the regions have launched implementation of 2,800 infrastructure projects, thus making it possible to assert the new quality of education, infrastructure, medical and social provision in communities and rural areas is being introduced. Vice Prime Minister, Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko stressed on air of Channel 5.

"Regional policy should be discussed in terms of opportunities. In rural areas, about 31% of Ukrainian citizens reside, hence it is crucial to create conditions to maintain and develop such human potential. Rural areas provide the largest share of gross domestic product, which is then converted into currency reserves of the country", said Hennadii Zubko.

He informed that in 2018 Government support for the development of regions would amount to UAH 18.5 billion, whereas in 2014 it had amounted only UAH 500 million.

"It is viewed possible to encourage people not to leave countryside, to engage in economic processes through the revival of infrastructure. The state motivates rural areas by investing in regional growth through the SRDF, subventions for CC, for socio-economic development and other programs. Meanwhile, the communities should focus mostly on accumulating resource for local budgets that now have reached UAH 173.5 billion in total. These are the opportunities for the implementation of strategies for the development of territories and the introduction of projects", emphasized Hennadii Zubko, adding the quality of services provision is of great significance.

It should be noted that in 2017 about 800 investment regional development projects within the framework of the State Regional Development Fund have been realized to the tune of UAH 3.5 billion. As part of the subvention for the development of CC infrastructure, over 2,000 projects to the tune of almost UAH 1.5 billion have been launched.
