Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Andriy Parubiy, and representatives of the World Bank Group, discussed the progress of reforms in Ukraine, during a meeting in the Ukrainian Parliament.

The speaker wrote about this on his Twitter page.

“I’ve spoken about the progress of reforms in Ukraine with the delegation of the board of directors of the World Bank. The unique situation in Ukraine is that we manage to carry out successful and fundamental reforms in conditions when Russian tanks are on our lands and the armed hostilities continue,” Parubiy said.

A delegation from the World Bank Group is currently on a visit to Ukraine.

Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman also met with the delegation.

“Comprehensive cooperation with international partners, including leading international financial organizations, is an important element of  the government’s international policy and a part of the overall policy for economic growth,” Groysman said during the meeting.

He spoke about the government’s priorities, which include economic growth and reforms in education, medicine, energy sector, pension system and public sector.

“We also work systematically on issues of deregulation, business climate, and completion of the creation of an anti-corruption infrastructure, the key element of which should be the creation of the anti-corruption court. It will be a signal that Ukraine is creating mechanisms to combat corruption,” Groysman said.

In turn, the representatives of the World Bank noted that Ukraine’s government has achieved significant success in reforming the state, but new challenges are ahead.
