This production will be impossible without Ukrainians,’ the President noted.
The Ukrainian leader also noted that 5 000 job positions should be created in Kolomyia until 2021 and there are 800 of them.

‘Why am I talking about the investors so confident? Why do the Ukrainian government, Ukrainian authorities and me as the President say that the worst is already behind? Ukraine has 6 consecutive quarters of strong economic growth. We are convinced that the losses caused by the war and economic aggression from Russia will no longer stop Ukraine. We survived, adapted, found new markets and ensure economic growth,’ Petro Poroshenko said.
The president noted that the opening of every plant is very important because Ukraine should become a successful country of successful people. He added that the wealthy people and the formed middle class are the basis of the security, independence, freedom and democracy of Ukraine.
‘We are especially grateful to those who believed in this and came to Ukraine first. Thank you for being with us today. Thank you for the fact that the mutually beneficial cooperation today brings real results to both investor and Ukraine,’ the President noted emphasizing that Ukraine was capable of defending itself and the Ukrainian army was a reliable guarantor of the state independence.
‘I would like to thank LEONI for being one of the first to believe in Ukraine, voting for the future of Ukraine with dollar, euro, creating future jobs, providing new taxes to the territorial communities, believing that Ukraine is competitive and effective for investors,’ Poroshenko noted.
The president noted that the reforms, holding in Ukraine, the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU and the Agreement on the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area brought such confidence to the investors.
