During the meeting of the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Development Council, President Petro Poroshenko noted that taking into account the experience gained, unpredictability of the implementation of the regional development policy and adoption of a clear plan for the long-term development should be overcome.
"I set a task to all regional authorities to work out plans for the future development of territories for 2019-2021. And it's not only about developing them, but also about discussing them with hromadas," the President said. He also stressed the importance of taking into account the features of the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast.
"I know that the draft concept of the State Programme for the Development of Territories of the Ukrainian Carpathians by 2023 is actively being discussed. Such a document will become a road map for the development of mountainous settlements. Its provisions should be taken into account in the hromada development planning," the President emphasised.
"Each hromada will determine its preferences and priorities without interference from Kyiv," the President noted, adding that this could be both tourism and creation of industrial zones.
"On their basis, top priority facilities will appear in your plans that will become visible development markers for all. The perspective plans with hromada-approved projects and financing mechanisms will substantially increase territory investment prospects," Petro Poroshenko said, emphasising that the state will find an opportunity to co-finance the first projects in order to encourage hromadas and show the rules of the game.
"The potential of Ukraine is, first and foremost, the potential of its regions. The Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast, Prykarpattia is a land of wonderful nature, talented, wise, patriotic people. Relying on them, relying on the hromadas, we will do much for their good and for the prosperity of the whole Ukraine," the President noted.
