Shmyhal has stressed that the Ukrainian government has launched some economic stimulus programs that have had a positive effect. According to him, Ukraine’s GDP recovered by 5.3% in 2023, while in the first four months of 2024, growth was 4.4%.

The Prime Minister also emphasized that after Russia's unprecedented strikes on the Ukrainian power system, the energy sector needs special support.

"More air defense systems, more energy equipment, assistance in expanding electricity imports to Ukraine, assistance in decentralizing the energy grid," he emphasized.

The Prime Minister also expressed gratitude to the governments of the partner countries for their faith in Ukraine and assistance on the way to victory, recovery, growth and European future.

As Ukrinform reported, the National Bank of Ukraine has approved decisions that will facilitate the development of credit support for projects on the reconstruction of energy infrastructure.
