Mingarelli says continuing fight against corruption in Ukraine will attract foreign investors
Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Ukraine Hugues Mingarelli has recalled the importance of continuing the fight against corruption to attract foreign investment in Ukraine.
If we want to create the necessary jobs, we need an economic growth of 5-6%. You need to attract foreign investors for this ... To do this, you need to achieve more progress in the fight against corruption and the rule of law, he said during a round table talk titled "Ukraine's European Choice after the Revolution of Dignity: Opportunities and Problems" in Kyiv on Friday.
The European diplomat stressed the need to establish an Anti-Corruption Court in accordance with the recommendations of the Venice Commission.
We know that much has already been done and still needs to be done in the sphere of the rule of law. And we are currently discussing with the Ukrainian authorities the creation of an Anticorruption Court as soon as possible, which would correspond to the recommendations of the Venice Commission, the diplomat added.
Mingarelli also noted the need to harmonize the Ukrainian legislation with the European one.
According to him, the EU considers the law on the land market as important for realizing the potential of the Ukrainian agricultural sector.
