Mykola Azarov noted that Ukraine has conducted a tax reform and introduced fairly liberal tax laws and low rates of taxation; deregulation and maximum simplification of business conditions, particularly small and medium, is proceeding.
Speaking about the investment potential, the Prime Minister informed that Ukraine already has free trade zones agreements with almost all its neighbors and is in talks with the EU. A similar document was signed with the European Free Trade Association; conclusion of an agreement with Canada, Israel and Singapore is at an advanced stage. "Ukraine is creating a favorable trading environment for cooperation with many countries in the world," he said.
Characterizing the global economic situation, the Ukrainian Prime Minister stressed that sustainable development is impossible in conditions of instability of the global monetary and financial systems.
The head of government drew attention to the fact that it is hardly possible to stabilize the currency situation, if countries that are issuers of reserve currencies have huge foreign debts and budget deficits, while international financial organizations have strict requirements to the state budget deficit of developing countries. "So, maybe industrialized countries are destabilizing the global financial system?" Mykola Azarov inquired. He expressed confidence that the leaders of G8 and G20 have a great responsibility to develop innovative approaches and practices.
