Speaker Razumkov meets EBRD Vice President to encourage broader capitals inflow

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

“Ukraine's predictability and stability will be the key to investment incentives,” – Dmytro Razumkov

Speaking on Monday at a meeting with the Vice President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Alain Pilloux, the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov thanked for the cooperation with Ukraine and expressed his confidence that this partnership would continue to be constructive and mutually beneficial.

"It is very important for us to get financial, political and economic support," he said.  "I hope that we will have a good relationship in the future".

Dmytro Razumkov emphasized the important role of the Bank, which is "one of the key international investors helping our country" and stressed that providing assistance from European institutions is of the first magnitude for the country.

To increase the volume of investments in Ukraine, it is necessary to restore trust between business and government, as well as to develop a certain legislative platform, the speaker of the Ukrainian parliament emphasized.

"We do have very ambitious plans, we hope that the economic growth rate will soon be 5-7%," he said, and announced that the draft budget for 2020 is almost ready, the budget, which "lays down a basic scenario for the economic growth".

Considering that the Bank is involved in many infrastructure projects, Dmytro Razumkov expressed his hope that adoption of the concession law would create an "additional margin of opportunity".

The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada also observed a significant spring in the level of confidence to the parliament after several weeks of hard work.

In the parliament speaker’s opinion, in order for investors to receive guarantees of protection, it is necessary to continue the judicial reform, the reform of law enforcement agencies, change the system of fiscal relations, make rules for business to be predictable, etc.

Dmytro Razumkov then underscored that nowadays in Ukraine there has emerged a unique situation - there is a plain consolidation of different vertical power structures - the President of Ukraine, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, and the Verkhovna Rada; governmental mechanisms and long-term plans for business are being developed. "Ukraine will be more predictable and stable for investments," he stressed.

The speaker also informed the EBRD Vice President about steps taken towards further privatization of state-owned enterprises, including coming start of the land market, having then emphasized that "Ukraine has great prospects and great opportunities".

In his turn, Alain Pilloux noted that the Bank would continue to cooperate with Ukraine - especially given the desire of the new authorities to implement reforms quickly and effectively. This applies to long-term infrastructure projects related to Naftogaz, Ukrenergo, construction of roads in the Mykolaiv, Kherson and Odesa regions, subways in Kharkiv, Dnipro, a number of projects in eastern Ukraine, Mariupol, etc.
