Denmark to support Ukraine, expects progress in reforms
Danish Prime Minister Lars Rasmussen has pointed out Ukraine's potential and said that Denmark expects further reforms from the country's authorities.
"It is important for Ukraine to continue the reform process... I congratulated the prime minister and the president on the reforms that Ukraine has conducted over the past years," he said during a joint press conference after the talks with Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko in Kyiv on Tuesday.
He added that Denmark, as a member of the European Union, will continue to support Ukraine on this path.
"I have brought with me representatives of Danish companies. These are more than 30 largest Danish companies, who joined me during this visit. I think this shows a great potential and interest in the continuation of investments and in the expansion of trade between our countries," the Danish prime minister said, adding that the interest of Danish companies in Ukraine has increased in recent years.
Rasmussen welcomed the progress made by the Ukrainian authorities on the path of transformations, the reforms that were proposed and passed by the Ukrainian parliament, but noted that there existed problems with the implementation of these laws and different obstacles for business.
Speaking about his meeting with new Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, Rasmussen said that he was impressed by the meeting and the conversation with the latter.
