President of Ukraine met with the OECD Secretary-General

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with Secretary General of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Mathias Cormann, who is on a visit to Ukraine.

The Head of State noted the practical steps of the OECD in response to Russia's aggression against Ukraine and thanked the Organization and Mathias Cormann personally for supporting our country.

"Your visit on the eve of the second anniversary of the full-scale Russian invasion is an important indication of solidarity with Ukraine," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

The further process of Ukraine acquiring full membership in the OECD, the operation of the Organization's Office in Ukraine, and the implementation of the OECD Program for our state were discussed.

Special attention was paid to the reform of Ukrainian legislation, in particular in the context of cooperation in the framework of Ukraine's participation in the OECD Working Group on Bribery in International Business Transactions, as well as our country's accession to this Group as a full member.

The President raised the issue of the OECD's involvement in the process of Ukraine's recovery, particularly in terms of expert and advisory support.

The parties also discussed tax incentives for business and risk insurance for investors in the Ukrainian economy.

Separately, Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Mathias Cormann focused on finding ways to use frozen Russian assets for Ukraine's recovery.
