PM Hroisman names land, pension, education reforms, state property privatization as government priorities

Ukraine’s medium and long term outlook will depend on five decisions taken by the government together with the Verkhovna Rada.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was said by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman during the Q&A hour in the parliament.

According to him, the first decision is the adoption of the "fair pension reform." The second is a large-scale transparent and competitive sale of inefficiently used state-owned property that has no strategic significance for Ukraine. The third decision is land reform adopted "for the sake and to the benefit of the Ukrainian farming."

"You will see that this will give a tremendous boost to the development of the national economy. We will submit a roadmap developed together with the international partners," Hroisman stressed.

"The next entry is implementation of the education reform, which has already been submitted to the parliament, and support for healthcare reform. We thank the Ukrainian lawmakers for their yesterday's decision to grant autonomy to healthcare facilities. This is just the first step that will allow us to build advanced healthcare system," the premier said.

Hroisman said the Cabinet was going to deal with the construction of roads, energy efficiency, and energy independence.

"We are also going to propose the Ukrainian parliament to pass legislation on the development of domestic IT sector and technological parks. We plan to submit the relevant bill to the Ukrainian parliament soon. We have ambitious plans, but we need the support of 226 lawmakers. I know for sure that this will give us the opportunity to significantly raise the pension for Ukrainians starting from Oct. 1. We need to repulse another attack of rabid populists. We will ensure economic growth in our country and make it prosper," he said.
