"Next year we must continue to actively reform the country. In particular, a number of bills are planned in the financial, judicial, investment sphere and in the land market," Poroshenko noted.
He added that the number one task for Ukraine is not to lose the pace of fundamental changes.
As it was reported earlier Poroshenko said that the main achievement of 2017 is the introduction of a visa-free regime with the countries of the European Union. He added that medical, educational and pension reforms, as well as large-scale road repairs are also the achievements of the year.
The President noted that Ukraine's membership in the European Union and accession to NATO remain strategic goals of the state, but it is not the prospect of 2018.
Foreign Ministry of Ukraine noted that a discussion of the expansion of the visa regime between Japan and Ukraine was made during the visit of Kazuyuki Nakane, the Japanese Foreign Minister to Kyiv on November 9.
