PM Shmyhal: Ukraine lost more than three million jobs for year of full-scale war

For the year of Russia’s full-scale invasion, Ukraine lost more than 3 million jobs. To improve the situation in this area, the government has already launched eWork project.

"Economic recovery is what we have to do. The Ukrainians lost over three million jobs for the year of full-scale war. That's why we launched eWork project," Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said at a press conference in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He added that the Cabinet of Ministers would extend the implementation of the project which provides grants to Ukrainians for starting a business, developing entrepreneurship, and training. The project has shown the first good results.

As reported, eWork government project offers grant programs aimed at stimulating entrepreneurship. The first wave of applications for micro-grants to start or develop a business was launched on February 1, 2023.

The project consists of six grant programs: micro-grants for starting a business; grants for developing a processing enterprise; state funding for planting a garden; funds for developing greenhouse farming; grant for a startup; funds for IT education.
