The Government’s activity for 100 days has been very eventful and objectively effective. Naturally, everyone wants to see changes as soon as possible, but an obvious contrast is evident - as in the previous two years people have seen mainly «talkative heads» instead of hard-working hands.
Our results are determined
by the fact that after several years of playing in power we managed to
form a real
It is impossible to
live further without reforms.
Starting point for the activity of the Government appeared to be much worse than we estimated being in opposition.
In terms of gross
domestic product the country is rebounded at the level of 2005, fixed
expenditures – 2004, industrial production – 2003, construction - 1996.

great business in crisis and hoped that this wouldn’t come to an end.
I think the «showiness» (as
opposed to efficiency) of the previous government will study
officers, not economists.
This must be done so that officials will not more take the power from the people.
So what have we managed
to do with the dowry, which we got?
For the first time in the recent years the realistic budget was adopted, ensuring economic stability. However, for the first time within two years the minimum wages and pensions, living wages and relevant social benefits are raised. Everything, that opponents maliciously called impossible, is performing confidently and consistently, because the Government has gotten public finances under control, stopped robbery of the national budget, corruption business in public procurement.
This is the budget of
recovery and social support for the citizens of
Foreseen by the Budget 2010 funding for education is by 15% more than in 2009; healthcare - by 8%; social spending - by 29%.
Real wages increased by more than 7% within the last five months, and by the end of the year will increase by 38%. (In 2009 real disposable income of the population decreased by 8.5% and real wages - by 27,4%).
Teachers received the bonus of 20%. They are for the first time in June paid 100% rise of vacation pay. Medicine staff received long-service bonuses of 10-30% of the wage (depending on years of service).
Within three months of the government activity wage debts are cut by almost 200 million UAH.
I want to note the increased income purchasing power has increased. For the first time since 2002 the country fixed the deflation (0.6%), whereas at the beginning of the year inflation amounted 3.7%.
But there are things
that the Government categorically doesn’t support. Such shame that

It is not correct to speak about the termination of the crisis. It is too early. However, we began to deal properly with it: to stimulate domestic consumption to recover domestic production. That means that we rely on ourselves, and such approach is bringing results.

Simplification of tax, licensing, regulatory procedures is the first step against corruption.
