During an official visit to the United Kingdom, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with representatives of the largest investors in Ukrainian government securities.
"We do everything for your protection, confidence, potential development and new projects," the President said, addressing the investors.
The President noted that the spread of COVID-19 was a challenge for both the world and Ukrainian economies. At the same time, the Government of Ukraine forecasts that this year our economy will reduce by 4.8%, and next year a significant recovery up to 4.6% is expected.
"We expect that Ukraine will be more economically stable than other countries, as key industries, including agro-industry and IT, have been hit less and will contribute to economic recovery," he said.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed that the support of international partners is crucial for Ukraine.
"We are grateful to the IMF, the EU and the World Bank for financial support packages for our country and support for important reforms in Ukraine," the President said.
The President noted that Ukraine has been consistently implementing all the reforms agreed in the Memorandum with the IMF. In particular, the gas market for private consumers has been liberalized and a transparent market of agricultural land has been introduced.
The President stressed that since the appointment of the new Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine, the NBU has continued to pursue a prudent monetary policy to ensure macroeconomic stability.
"The National Bank was, is and will remain independent," Volodymyr Zelenskyy assured.
