Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Hugues Mingarelli states that the Ukrainian authorities have taken significant steps to modernize the country over the past four years.

He said this during the press conference "Results of EU-Ukraine Association Agreement implementation for 2017 and further plans", an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"If the authorities have the political will, there is no doubt that over the past four years the representatives of political power in this country have taken significant steps to modernize and transform the country to turn it into a democratic, open society based on the social market economy. We have no doubt about this," the EU ambassador said.

Mingarelli mentioned progress in energy efficiency, digital technologies and environment among the successful changes in Ukraine.

At the same time, the Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine noted the need to focus on reforms in the areas of transport, intellectual property, customs, taxation and healthcare.
