When trying to create transparent conditions for business

Any actions of the government aimed at creating transparent conditions for business activities meet with “fierce resistance”. Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko claimed this today at a session of the Council of Investors at the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, she said: “We have rather clear intents to introduce order in the business system in Ukraine. Without any doubt, this is not easy, and just a government’s desire is not enough. Every step, aimed at creating transparent procedures, meets with fierce resistance”, Yulia Tymoshenko said.

In her opinion, this indicates that the Ukraine business system is opposed to any changes.

“We saw this in 2005, and we see this today as well. But, I hope that our council, created to achieve changes, is really important”, Yulia Tymoshenko said.

The Prime Minister assured the Council of Investors representatives that the government is ready to daily work.

“Our meetings will be held periodically. Our work will be carried out every day at the level of Ministries and departments, working groups, which will be created today. Step by step, all this will bring positive”, the Prime Minister pointed out.

Yulia Tymoshenko also outlined the three top priorities of the government in the sphere of creating favorable conditions for business: wiping out bureaucratic obstacles, wiping out any privileges and exceptions for certain economic objects, and minimizing corruption in this sphere.
