The government intends to keep up people's trust next year, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said opening a session of the Cabinet, ForUm correspondent reports.

"I want to remind that the next year income tax will be reduced by 2% (to 21%). We have also liberated the priority sectors of industries from the income tax. We have finally introduced deregulation. Of course, not all restrictions have been removed from business, but then next year the things will go faster," Azarov said.

At the same time he expressed concern about lack of confidence in the future among people.
"May be it's our mistake that we do not discuss long-term perspectives with the society, but I want to remind that, for example, from January 1, 2013 the income tax will be reduced to 19%, and from January 1, 2014  - to 16%. We also don't speak much about that from January 1, 2014 the value-added tax will be just 17%. These are all key-points and perspectives for business initiative," Azarov noted.

According to him, for half a year of work the government has proved it keeps its promises. "This is a fact, and even our opponents cannot refute it. We intend to keep up the pace," Azarov summed up.
