“There’s no deadline in particular for tax reform” explains Ukraine’s Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko who believes that “the most critical issues” have already been incorporated into last years budget.
However, as Jaresko explained to Hromadske, what is “in the end really critical for Ukraine [is] to have serious long term reform, is going to be the judicial system”. Jaresko believes that “you need to have a carrot - which is the policy reform, but the stick which is fear of going to jail if you break the law”.
The Ukrainian Minister of Finance attended the 2016 World Economic Forum in Davos as a member of the official Ukrainian delegation and discussed the country’s program of implementing tax reforms.
