In particular, they noted the first positive results of joint efforts made by the business circles: the National Committee for Industrial Development has been established; the “Ukraine is a Country of Entrepreneurs” program is being implemented. Further, work with parliamentarians has been organized. Ideas from the public to develop the country is presented by the “Transformation of Ukraine” parliamentary group, the Office of the Business Representative in parliament. This time the Ukrainian League of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (ULIE) has cemented relationship and cooperation with Members of Parliament by signing a memorandum with the Deputy Control inter-faction group of parliamentarians. These issues were covered by a meeting of the ULIE Board in Kyiv.
The document provides for coordination of partners’ efforts to fight corruption, lobby and adopt relevant legislation, remove similar obstacles to doing business, start up own business, raise investment funds, and others.
The process of strengthening the role of social dialogue in the country is under way. Recently, the largest union of employers – the Association of the Employers Organizations of Ukraine, the Federation of Employers of Ukraine – discussed measures to raise the efficiency of the joint representative body of employers in their dialogue with the authorities. They formulated the first proposals they agreed on and sent them to the country’s leaders and the government.
The ULIE Board approved proposals regarding international business relations in the wake of a recent Ukrainian-Lithuanian forum with the participation of the Presidents of the two countries along with recommendations of the newly created Spain-Ukraine Business Council, and a number of forums and meetings with partners from Austria, Canada, Israel, Iran, the United States, and others. The ULIE also awarded diplomas and gifts to partners from media organizations and experts.
