Belgium: New investment plan for Ukraine

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

Hanna Hopko, the head of the Committee on Foreign Affairs participated in a presentation ceremony of the New European Investment Plan for Ukraine in Brussels, Belgium

The event took place on October 11th at the Centre for European Policy Studies’ (CEPS) premises, which is a high-end European think tank. Lithuanian ex-Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius stated at the presentation that the Eastern Partnership summit which had been scheduled for this November would conclusively reaffirm the support of the investment plan for Ukraine by the EU member countries.

While meeting the Lithuanian Seimas Speaker Viktoras Pranckietis, Hanna Hopko, the Committee on Foreign Affairs head, pointed out it was Ukraine’s oughts to show its readiness to pursue the path of reforms, to offer certain infrastructure projects, to clearly attain needful resources to finance small- and medium-size businesses.

When delivering a political part of her brief report on the state of play in Ukraine, Hanna Hopko informed those in attendance on the progress in the reforms, and about the pension and education reforms in particular, not leaving the cybersecurity issue out in the cold as well.

In the ECFR open debates over the EU’s role in Ukraine’s future, the Chairwoman of Foreign Affairs Committee Hanna Hopko has highlighted the EU’s principled stand over the Nord Stream 2 blockage issue. Once Russia triggers the Nord Stream 2, Ukraine starts to promptly lose $2-2.4 billion annually through the subsided transit flows of Russian energy resources.

“As a reliable partner, we are fulfilling our energy duties in anticipation of the EU’s consistent stand over the Nord Stream 2. We do also hope the European Union will in no way be supporting any new gas supply facilities like “The TurkStream Project”, and revise its view over rendering some extra facilities to Gazprom (Opal),” stressed Hanna Hopko.
