"We allocate money and make great efforts to repair roads. According to expert estimates, over $35 billion is needed to upgrade the outdated infrastructure," Kubiv said.
According to him, this sum should be concentrated and diversified between the projects necessary for implementation of the European infrastructure standards.
"It is impossible to provide such financial resource without private capital, and the public-private partnership is one of the tools of modern infrastructure development," Kubiv said.
