Digitization will simplify business life as much as possible. The goal of the Ukrainian government is to make it possible for entrepreneurs to register business and provide services online, and even pay taxes with one click. Diia.Business centers are designed to unite entrepreneurs, increase the percentage of new companies in the regions and reduce the number of cases of business closures.

To see how it works, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy got himself acquainted with the work of the first Center for Entrepreneurship Support in Ukraine together with the consulting zone "Diia.Business" during a working trip to the Kharkiv region.

Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov noted that "Diia.Business" is a large-scale national project for business development, which has two components: "Diia.Business" online platform for entrepreneurs and a network of offline support centers for entrepreneurs.

He emphasized that the "Diia.Business" project should improve communication between government and business.

"We believe that our team will be able to create the best conditions for business development during its years in office," Mykhailo Fedorov said.

The Deputy Prime Minister noted that 100,000 people have already used the services of starting a business via the "Diia" portal.

"It will be possible to register an LLC online. And this will be the fastest service in the world," Mykhailo Fedorov stressed.

He informed that the "Diia.Business" centers will be created in 50 cities of Ukraine. In particular, they will be opened on the basis of administrative service centers.

The President noted that they should be created not only in regional centers, but also in small towns, in particular in the centers of united territorial communities.

"I think we should go from Kyiv to big cities and small ones. We must help businesses where it is needed. This means that the state must be a support throughout Ukraine," the President said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed that the office was created in the most modern format. He talked to entrepreneurs who receive consultations.

Mykhailo Fedorov added that the subject "Entrepreneurship" will be introduced in some educational institutions as a pilot project.
