Finance Ministry: Ukraine counts on World Bank’s support in implementing pension, healthcare reforms

Finance Minister Oleksandr Danyliuk held a meeting with World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim on November 13.

In a post on his Facebook page, Danyliuk wrote that the parties discussed the achievements of Ukraine over the past three years and the reforms the country should still implement.

“We have managed to approve two very important reforms for the future of Ukraine: the pension and healthcare reforms. The support of such international partners as the World Bank in the development of these reforms cannot be overestimated.

Another main part of these two reforms, their implementation, is ahead. We will need the support from the World Bank in this process. And we have already discussed the steps needed to implement these changes, in particular, the experience of other countries," the minister wrote.

Also, the parties discussed the attraction of investments into the Ukrainian economy.

“We also discussed global challenges facing our state today. One of which is the attraction of investments. We need to think how to attract investors and develop the strong sectors of the Ukrainian economy, one of which is the agricultural sector. Therefore, we with the World Bank President discussed the ways to raise the productivity of the Ukrainian agricultural sector, and, most importantly, the development of the brand of Ukraine as a strong player in the global agriculture market," the minister stressed.
