“In terms of the level of accessibility of financial services for people, we are somewhere close to Uganda, Gabon and Ecuador. We expect MPs to support bill 2788-D ‘On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine on Financial Services in the Field of Postal Services,” Kryklii wrote on his Telegram channel.
In 2017, Ukrposhta initiated a bill to expand financial services, but the document did not receive support. The National Bank stated against the relevant legislative changes, pointing to the existence of four large state-owned banks in Ukraine, the total share of which after the privatization of PrivatBank exceeded 50% of the market.
In 2018, the national postal operator received a customs broker license. In the same year, the NBU granted Ukrposhta a license to transfer funds in the national currency without opening accounts.
In January 2020, the Verkhovna Rada again registered a bill amending certain legislative acts on financial services in the field of postal services (No.2788).
