At least $20 bln to be invested in Ukrainian infrastructure in 5 years – Zelensky

In the next five years, at least USD 20 billion will be invested in the infrastructure of Ukraine.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said this at the Ukraine-Turkey Business Forum in Istanbul on Thursday, August 8, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Over the next five years, the country will change dramatically, our economy will grow at 5-7% per year, and I invite Turkish business to join us. During this time, we will invest at least USD 20 billion in our infrastructure to build 24,000 kilometers of our roads, increase the number of working airports to 15, ensure the development of 5 seaports in order to significantly increase their capacity, and triple the capacity of our military and industrial complex,” the head of state stressed.

He added that the Verkhovna Rada would pass a concession law in the autumn, which would allow the state to cooperate safely with private companies.

  1. $20 Billion is nothing. Maybe one highway… And the last thing Ukraine needs is money from a russian asslicker like Turkey.
