Norwegian foreign minister welcomes reforms in Ukraine

Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide has welcomed the prospects for investment cooperation with Ukraine, taking into account the current level of reforms.

She said this during a meeting with Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in Kyiv on Tuesday, September 4, the Government portal reported.

"We are impressed by the results of reforms already achieved by Ukraine. The improvement of the investment climate can already be felt. That is why the prospects of investment cooperation are quite optimistic," Ine Eriksen Søreide noted.

According to the minister, Ukrainian reforms are in good hands, and this is important to understand with a view to the formation of areas for cooperation with Ukraine, and the calculation of efficiency of specific commercial projects that can be implemented in Ukraine.

At the same time, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman noted that the volume of tasks facing Ukraine was in fact unprecedented.

"If we talk about how many processes we manage today, among the key ones are education, medicine, privatization, decentralization, fighting corruption, defense, internal security. And this is just a small list. Separately, we are shaping a decision on deepening of the European integration processes and improvement of the business climate. So we invite and welcome the Norwegian business in Ukraine," the prime minister said.

The parties stressed that the meeting of the Ukrainian-Norwegian Intergovernmental Commission scheduled for September would give a significant impetus to joint cooperation as well as further direct contacts between government officials of both countries. The head of government accepted an invitation to visit Norway approximately in November this year.
