Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with business representatives

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with representatives of domestic and foreign businesses operating in our country.

Preserving and creating new jobs, especially in times of war, is critical to the sustainability of the Ukrainian economy.

The President emphasized that the main priority for our country today is to win the war, and the role of business operating in Ukraine is extremely important in this regard.

"We are grateful to our external partners. They support us strategically and financially and help us a lot. But we rely on ourselves first and foremost," he said.

The President also noted that rebuilding Ukraine is a major project, and the priority will be the participation of Ukrainian and foreign businesses that have worked and are working in our country, especially during the war.

"But the doors will be open for many companies. We need hundreds and thousands of companies to come to us," the Head of State added.

During the meeting, the parties agreed on joint efforts to reduce problems for business from law enforcement agencies, discussed the situation in the tax area and prospects for its reform, touched upon tax audits, and the issue of enhancing the efficiency of agencies that are supposed to stimulate economic development and provide investment support.

The participants noted a very interesting and promising affordable housing lending program, eHousing, initiated by the President of Ukraine, and the importance of its further expansion.

During the conversation, business representatives proposed to create a coordination platform for communication on business rights protection and other issues. The President supported this initiative, offering to jointly determine the format of work.

"It is very important to create a platform where we would constantly talk. Because we cannot accumulate problems for years: we simply will not be able to overcome them later," Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted.
