On April 19, Minister of Finance of Ukraine Oleksandr Danyliuk had a meeting with the President of the World Bank Jim Kim as a part of the annual Spring meetings of the IMF and the World Bank.
The parties expressed their confidence that the World Bank will continue to be a reliable partner for Ukraine which is now reforming its financial system as well as its economy as a whole.
Jim Kim, from his side, emphasized the importance of the pension and land reforms for Ukraine. According to Mr. Kim, the successful implementation of these key reforms will be an indicator reflecting the readiness of Ukraine to continue significant and complicated transformations necessary for the development of the country and its economy.
Ukraine and the World Bank are now cooperating on seven projects. Each of them is contributing to more employment as well as to the enhancement of Ukraine’s financial systems, transfer of skills and technological know-how.
