Zelensky: quality reforms must make people “want to live in Ukraine”
Volodymyr Zelensky chaired the first meeting of the National Council of Reforms, attended by Cabinet and Parliament leadership.
Opening the meeting, the Head of State assessed the quality and dynamics of implementation of changes in Ukraine, his office reported.
According to him, any reform can only be deemed successful if it yields result.
“Any reform is first and foremost about result. It’s when you walk down the street and feel safe. When you come home and you have money in your pocket, that is, you make money. That is why to me, reforms are about an opportunity,” Zelensky said.
The Head of State stressed the need for judicial reform, as there is a great demand for justice and security in Ukraine. In addition, it is critical to create an effective healthcare system. The president also stressed the need for affordable loans for the population, reforming the tax system, accelerating privatization, and noted progress in the field of digitization and infrastructure, in particular in the implementation of the Great Construction project.
“Reforms are also about responsibility. Someone has to bear responsibility and ensure the results. Therefore, I think this is the main task for the National Council of Reforms. To do everything to make us all want to live in Ukraine,” Volodymyr Zelensky summed up.
