Deregulation & Privatization Top Priorities For Ukraine's Economy Minister
2 March, 2015

The top reform priorities are deregulation and large-scale privatization, said the Minister of Economic Development and Trade Aivaras Abromavicius.

While Ukraine is currently at number 96 in terms of top places to do business, in two years, Abromavicius said he plans for Ukraine to be in the top 50.

Abromavicius was appointed to the ministry three months ago. His predecessor, Pavlo Sheremeta resigned in September 2014, citing frustrations with Ukraine's bureaucracy.

Hromadske International's Angelina Kariakina spoke with Abromavicius on Sunday March 1, 2015 at the Hromadske studio in Kyiv.
