Regional economic forum in Kyiv held in the framework of the World Economic Forum must provide a positive signal for the Summit in Vilnius, where Ukraine plans to sign the Association Agreement with the EU. It was stated by the President at the meeting with Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab.

"It is very important that this forum will be held on the eve of the Summit in Vilnius. We expect that the Association Agreement and FTA Agreement will be signed in the course of the given Summit. Also, it is very important for us that the Ukrainian regional economic forum of the World Economic Forum provides a respective signal to Vilnius. It will be another important component for making the positive decision," the Head of State said at the meeting with Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab.

He noted that a great work was being held in Ukraine to hold the regional economic forum. "We have established 88 groups consisting of the best world experts, specialists, political scientists and economists who are currently elaborating proposals on various directions," the Head of State noted.

According to the President, discussion at the forum in Kyiv will be useful for Ukraine. At the same time, this discussion must be continued within the Forum in Davos. "We understand that recommendations at the Economic Forum in Davos will be increasingly important for Ukraine as a state that is in the top-30 global exporters. Ukrainian economy has a lot of problem issues related to the world economic crisis," Viktor Yanukovych emphasized.

He reminded that due to the reforms held in Ukraine since 2010, the government had managed to inhibit negative trends in the economy. In that context, the President emphasized the importance of cooperation with the WEF.
