All regions of Ukraine already have become investment hubs with powers, resources and responsibility. And this is just the beginning, Vice Prime Minister - Minister of Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko told the 1st Forum of Regions of Ukraine and Belarus.
"Thanks to decentralisation, we are talking about strengthening regional cooperation, economic and investment opportunities. Each of our regions can produce and deliver its products not only to its region and throughout Ukraine, but also to the countries of the European Union. We have the opportunity to communicate regarding energy, engineering, agro-industrial complex, pipe products and metallurgy ", said Hennadii Zubko.
The Vice Prime Minister mentioned that the Forum is attended by representatives from 17 regions of Ukraine and 6 oblasts of Belarus, as well as about 100 Ukrainian and Belarusian enterprises. Interregional cooperation agreements worth $ 100 million have already been signed, and this was made possible thanks to the initiative of the Presidents of Ukraine and Belarus to hold the 1st Forum of Regions of the two countries.
It is worth mentioning that the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko had an initiative to hold the 2nd Forum of Regions of Ukraine and Belarus in Zhytomyr.
