During a working trip to the Ivano-Frankivsk region, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with representatives of the administrative and economic sector of the region. The Head of State thanked the previous RSA Head for his work and introduced his successor Andriy Boychuk, expressing hope for successful teamwork in the region.
"Congratulations and good luck! I wish you to be able to deliver the results to the people," the President said.
Head of the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional State Administration Andriy Boychuk noted that this position is a great responsibility for him.
"From the first day, we are establishing internal management communication, cooperation with public authorities and local self-government. I am interested in working with each leader of the community, village, town, city, district on problematic issues," he said.
Minister for Communities and Territories Development Oleksiy Chernyshov stressed that in 2020 the foundation of decentralization was laid in Ukraine, the configuration of united territorial communities was formed. He reminded that as a result of consolidation in Ukraine there are 136 districts now instead of 490. Six of them are in the Ivano-Frankivsk region.
"A lot has been done in the framework of the "Large Construction" program in the Ivano-Frankivsk region, but this is not enough. Plans for 2021 are more ambitious. This is a program that does not work on paper, but already improves the lives of millions of Ukrainians," Oleksiy Chernyshov emphasized.
