President: Ukraine is willing to enhance cooperation with EBRD

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a meeting with the delegation of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

The Head of State noted support from the EBRD in the development of the country's economy.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy also thanked EBRD President Suma Chakrabarti for the fact that the EBRD remains the largest institutional investor in Ukraine and assured of willingness to develop cooperation.

"Thank you for being here and thank you for being the largest investor in Ukraine. I want to assure you that we will increase our cooperation," the President said.

He added that the EBRD strategy fully met the priorities of our state, and expressed conviction that Ukraine and the bank could work together more efficiently. According to the Head of State, Ukraine appreciates cooperation with international partners - the EBRD, the World Bank and the IMF.

The President recalled that he had already met with representatives of the IMF, which noted the progress of Ukraine in fulfilling its obligations under the Stand-by program. According to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the issue of continuation of cooperation was discussed during these negotiations.

The Head of State also stressed that he was determined to carry out reforms in the country and to fight corruption. This requires a parliament and a government that would enjoy trust of citizens.
