EBRD is a reliable partner and constant supporter of Ukraine, and there should be enough room for enhancement in relations. Ukraine’s president Petro Poroshenko said that at the meeting with the Banks director Suma Chakrabarty, which took place in Kyiv on Thursday.

‘We highly appreciate the active role of the EBRD in the introduction of projects in the public sector, particularly in the energy and transport, as well as the investment in the private and banking sectors,’ the Head of State noted as quoted by his press service.

Poroshenko also urged the EBRD to use the opportunities of cooperation with local authorities more actively, as they have received additional financial powers due to the decentralization reform that currently takes place across the country. The President also ‘praised the activity of the EBRD in the administration of the Chernobyl Shelter Fund and the Nuclear Safety Account’, reads the message.
