The law on electricity market and the law on the national commission for state regulation in energy and utilities services are a priority for the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada and Ukrainian economy, they have to be passed in the fall, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman told the Ukrainian Energy Conference, Ukrinform has reported.
"We hope that parliament will adopt this law [law on electricity market - ed.] in the fall, we consider it a priority, as well as the law on the independent regulator. We are cooperating with the Ukrainian parliament on that legislation," said Groysman.
According to him, the national regulator on utilities rates is a sufficiently independent entity, but it has to bolster its independence.
"The regulator has been operating in Ukraine and it is quite transparent. The only thing that we need to reform is legislation in order to ensure its independence," the premier noted.
