KIEV, January 09, 14:38 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s government is stepping up the efforts to implement the economic development program, Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said.
Speaking at a government session on Thursday, Azarov said, “One of the key tasks is to make the economic development program to work. This will give us a chance to have a competitive industry and agriculture within five or ten years.”
Vice-Premier Sergei Arbuzov is responsible for this trend, the premier said.
“The priority task is to provide possible financial resources to successful projects, which are primarily related to industrial and production modernization. There can’t be any compromises or delays,” he said.
Barriers for slowing down investments into enterprises and industries, which are implied in the economic development program, should be removed within the month, Azarov said.
The premier sets the task “to start talks on conditions for signing the Association Agreement with the European Union and a free trade zone deal”.
“We speak the language of facts and figures, and irrefutable arguments with our partners because the existence of Ukraine, which develops its own economy and not the economy of other countries, is thrown into the say,” he said.
“Thus, our task is that in February we should have a balanced development project with all advantages that the CIS free trade zone, industrial cooperation with Russia and interaction with the EU countries give up,” Azarov said, adding that Ukraine needed a coordinated plan of action on concrete trends, braches and separate enterprises.
“Foreign investors also need this plan because modernization is impossible without it,” the premier said.
