It takes at least 10 years to reform Ukrainian industry. President Volodymyr Zelensky stated this during the Ukraine 30 forum.
“Modernization of industry, which has not taken place in Ukraine so far, will take place this time. We are talking about modernization of large industry, any, not just TPP. But do not believe those who say that it is possible to reform in accordance with our agreements and European experience only for a year. No. The transition to modernized industry will take place within 10-12 years, “the president said.
He also announced the adoption of decisions by parliament, which provide for the introduction of “green” taxes for industry.
“Parliament has to pass a complex law that provides for many different taxes: on iron ore, etc. And there is a very important tax – on emissions, on carbon dioxide,” he said.
Zelensky noted that the environmental situation in Ukraine is bad because companies have not switched to European emission standards.
“Here are all the steps I consider to be reform: modernization of industry and high emissions taxes,” the president concluded.
