In his speech during the Second Economist Roundtable , the Head of State spelled out his short-term priorities to ensure economic growth and to stabilize and modernize our market, the President's press office reported.

The President noted that our country had "inherited" many problems from the previous regime, and they hampered many processes. However, he is convinced that by implementing proper policy and by establishing active dialogue between government and business we can overcome all obstacles to successfully build Ukraine's competitive economy.

Yushchenko dwelled on his government’s plans for 2006, which should be “a year of reforms.” They are going to reform the energy sector, education, the coal industry, the judicial system, the medical sector, and the pension fund.

Speaking about the problem of corruption, the President reiterated that courts and law enforcement agencies should work efficiently.

“This is a huge problem that can only be solvedafter judicial reforms and deep changes within the system of law enforcement agencies,” he said, adding that his order to re-organize law enforcement agencies was the first stage of this reform.

The second stage, he said, is to re-organize the Security Service, the Prosecutor General’s Office and other bodies so that they should"meet modern demands.”

Speaking about privatization, he said in 2006 Ukraine would "transparently and publicly" sell several strategic state enterprises such as the Ukrtelecom, the Nikopol Ferroalloy Plant, and the Odessa Port Plant.

The Presidentalso informed those present that the government intended to invest in rocket-building, aircraft-building, and ship-building.
