Groysman: Ukraine and Croatia enhance cooperation in social sector

Ukraine and Croatia are stepping up cooperation in the social sector, primarily on the issues of war veterans, rehabilitation of internally displaced persons and the restoration of territorial integrity.

Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman stated this at the meeting with Croatia’s Minister of Labor and Pension Marko Pavic, the government’s press service reports.

“We are interested in applying Croatia’s best practices in the peaceful reintegration of temporary occupied territories. One of our priorities is the development of institutional and legislative framework to manage the assistance for internally displaced persons," the Ukrainian prime minister said.

In addition, the parties discussed the issues of the socialization of war veterans and the creation of necessary conditions so that they can become full-fledged labor market participants.

"I am grateful that we can develop our relations in the field of labor and social assistance and in the field of employment so that the cooperation between our countries can become more fruitful. We understand what is taking place in your country. And we fully support you in the matters of territorial integrity and the illegal annexation of Crimea. We want to provide you with all possible support,” Marko Pavic said.

During the visit, the Memorandum of Cooperation between the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine and the Ministry of Labor and Pension of the Republic of Croatia was signed.

In June 2017, Ukraine and Croatia signed a plan of cooperation for a joint working group on the issues of the reintegration of temporary occupied territories. The cooperation plan sets top priority tasks of cooperation, including studying experience of Croatia in the reintegration of occupied territories and return of internally displaced persons, restoration of trust of the population and infrastructure, attraction of international assistance and social support in the reintegrated territories.
