President to propose economic strategy
It will be proposed in November as a national doctrine
President Victor Yushchenko said during a teleconference with students on Saturday he would soon propose a strategy for Ukraine’s economic development, according to the President`s press-office.
“Ukraine’s economic strategy will be proposed in November as a national doctrine, as a national law. I am convinced our new parliament will consider it first,” he said. “I believe it is important for the nation to have such a strategy when the government offers no program for the country’s development.”
Yushchenko said experts insisted that Ukraine must “radically” change its tax system and adopt a new tax code.
“I do not think we have some deficit of economic programs today. I know we have passed fifteen such programs over the years of independence," he said, adding that there was "no political unity to uphold the nation’s key priorities.”
