Ukraine needs a restart after the coronavirus pandemic. This was stated by Finance Minister Serhiy Marchenko during the presentation of the draft state budget for 2021, broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"The country needs a restart," Marchenko stated.
According to him, the draft state budget for 2021 envisages support for business activities and a course for economic transformation, which is necessary for recovery from the crisis caused by Covid-19.
In addition, the government intends to implement measures to combat the above-mentioned crisis, so that the economy recovers and opportunities for development appear once again.
As we reported earlier, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy Danylo Hetmantsev believes that Ukraine will receive the second tranche from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) this December.
"If we talk about what is happening with the International Monetary Fund now, we were supposed to receive a tranche in September. Obviously, this is not going to happen, but there is hope that our negotiating team will achieve results and we will get it in December," the statement said.
