The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko positively assessed a number of bilateral meetings held on January 24-26 within the frameworks of the World Economic Forum in Davos. This was reported by the president’s press service.

"About forum in Davos, I could say one phrase - everything was very good," he said during a briefing concerning his participation in the forum.

The President said detailed consultations with partners in international financial organizations were very constructive. According to him, positions were formed regarding the arrival of experts and determined what steps remained to receive the next tranche.

The President reminded that several meetings took place, in particular with IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde, her deputy David Lipton, and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim.

In addition, a meeting was held in the Ukrainian House in Davos with the President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Suma Chakrabarti.

"Speaking about practical steps, I asked President Chakrabarti that in 2018 we pay more attention to the private sector, so that more EBRD crediting goes to the private and municipal sectors, because joint investments and lending allow to increase investment transparency, taking into account decentralization,” the president said.
