The Cabinet of Ministers has approved the National Economic Strategy until 2030, according to a statement posted on the government’s website.
“During the meeting, the government approved the National Economic Strategy until 2030 with revisions,” the statement said.
Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said that the National Economic Strategy 2030 was an ambitious vision of Ukraine into the future and a road map that will change the country.
“The National Economic Strategy 2030 is a comprehensive document that should bring Ukraine to the club of developed and successful countries. The strategy was developed with the involvement of experts, scientists, officials, and MPs. This will be a significant contribution to the development of a successful, prosperous European Ukraine,” he said.
More than 500 participants joined the creation of the National Economic Strategy 2030: representatives of over 20 think tanks, over 30 business associations, 40 executive bodies, experts, civil society, and MPs.
The document outlines strategic steps for the development of industry, agriculture, mining, infrastructure, transport, energy, information and communication technologies, creative industries, and the service sector. The strategy also takes into account important cross-cutting areas – digitalization, renewable energy, the development of entrepreneurship, and balanced regional development.
The principles on which the National Economic Strategy is based include European and Euro-Atlantic integration, inviolability of private property, rule of law, intolerance of corruption, free and fair competition, and equal access for business.
Shmyhal thanked all those who joined the development of the National Economic Strategy 2030. He also expressed hope that all branches of government would be actively involved in achieving a common goal for the country.
