About UAH 6 billion is needed to introduce European requirements on the Ukrainian market of transport operations.
Petro Ovchar, Vice President of the state department of motor transport Ukravtotrans, said this during consultations dedicated to the development of a concept for de-regulation and liberalization of passenger transportation, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“About UAH 6 billion is needed to introduce new European requirements, stipulated in a bill [the draft law on amending some legislative acts of Ukraine in the sphere of transport operations in order to bring them in line with EU legislation]. At the same time, the industry bears huge financial burden,” Ovchar said.
According to him, there are three main problems in the transport sector: "These are the issue of benefits, the adjustment of fares for using urban transport, and the admission to the market, this means the types of traffic: regular and not regular".
