During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ukrainian economy needs additional incentives for development. This was stated by Chairpersons of the Verkhovna Rada Dmytro Razumkov during the visit to the 'Electronmash' Plant in Lviv. However, he stressed the need to focus on supporting Ukrainian industry.
He also noted the need to stimulate investment. "We must create economic levers that will influence Ukrainian business to develop, to become powerful, to become industrial again," Dmytro Razumkov added.
According to the Speaker of the Parliament, the share of the processing industry should increase. According to him, the share of the processing industry in GDP over the past ten years has decreased from 30% to 20%.
Dmytro Razumkov reminded that the Parliament had adopted in the first reading the draft law on industrial parks, which could be a serious impetus for attracting both domestic and foreign investment.
"Only by joint efforts we will be able to make industry revive and create new jobs in our country. New jobs are taxes. Taxes are the development of the country. And the development of the country is what our joint efforts should be aimed at," the Chairperson of the Verkhovna Rada said.
In addition, he noted that a strong economy will promote Ukraine's integration into the EU.
