The Kyiv region needs a strategy of its development, President Viktor Yanukovych said in his speech at a meeting to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Kyiv region.

"I see three main objectives of this strategy: providing basic human rights, tackling social and economic problems of local communities, and laying the foundation for sustainable development of the region," he said.

According to Viktor Yanukovych, to achieve the first goal, it is necessary to improve the quality of administrative services provided to businesses and individuals by the local authorities.

Viktor Yanukovych also said that the initiated administrative reform and the planned reform of local government are components of a comprehensive Program of Economic Reforms for 2010-2015, and are aimed at making public administration more efficient and bringing it closer to European standards.

According to the President, it is also important to improve the investment attractiveness of the Kyiv region in order to improve people’s welfare.

The President praised the region’s government initiative to support 50 regional investment projects. "Achieving the investment projects’ results - $4 billion in investments and 35,000 new jobs - will be one of the main evaluation criteria of the leadership of the region," Viktor Yanukovych said.

The President also said that the Kyiv region should be well prepared, along with the capital, to properly welcome Euro 2012 guests. "Kyiv region’s executive and local authorities must timely and efficiently complete the projects to build hotels, tourist and transport infrastructure," he said.
