Ukraine's integration into the European Union is a strategic goal for the government, Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov said at the meeting with the head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Ian Tombinski, the Cabinet’s press service informs.
The Prime Minister also noted that Ukraine hopes for an infusion of European investments in the Ukrainian economy. According to him, to create a favorable climate in Ukraine, the government has taken a number of decisions related to deregulation, reducing the administrative burden on business, tax cuts, etc.
Azarov stressed the importance of continued cooperation between Ukraine and the International Monetary Fund under stand-by program, saying that the parties are negotiating to revise the IMF conditions to raise tariffs for the population, which, according to the Prime Minister, "will not withstand tariff racing," given high gas prices for Ukraine. The Prime Minister said that Ukraine is in talks with Russia to revise gas contract.
Ukraine also initiates the European Energy Conference. "We look forward to the active position of the European Union on this issue," the head of the government said.
