Miklos: Political rather than technical issues stand in the way of reforms
According to Ivan Miklos, populism is the biggest threat to successful reforms in Ukraine
In Ukraine, implementation of reforms is a political rather than a technical issue and the biggest threat to successful implementation of reforms is populism, representative of Reform Support Group in Ukraine Ivan Miklos stated at a briefing, reports LIGA.net.
“Today, reformation is more of a political rather than a technical issue. Technically, we know what needs to be done. But leadership of reforms is also very important”, - he said.
According to Miklos, populism is the biggest threat to reforms and to a better future for the country. “Populism offers no solutions. Populism uses hard times for its own purposes, not for society”, - Miklos pointed out.
As an example of “leadership” during implementation of reforms, Miklos named increase of gas tariffs for Ukrainian citizens by the new Cabinet of Ministers.
“This is even more than required by IMF program. This is an example of leadership of reforms. This is an example, that Ukraine is implementing reforms not for IMF or the EU, Ukraine is doing it for its own future”, - Miklos explained.
