Kiev, Ukraine (PortSEurope) September 14, 2017 – Last August, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said that the country’s logistics infrastructure is to be overhauled and that the Ministry of Infrastructure is working out comprehensive industry development proposals.
From ports, railroads and air traffic, the sector needs to be developed.
Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr made the announcement whilst of a visit to the Mykolaiv region. He placed a special emphasis on the fact that work aimed to strengthen the industries are already underway.
«The strategy for road development is based on concrete projects. We need time and resources», stressed Volodymyr Groysman and added that an essential component of the resources’ provision is customs revenues.
«Last year Mykolaiv customs office provided a sum worth UAH 600 million (€19.27 million/$22.93 million) and this year revenues are already UAH 1.2 billion (€38.5 million/$45.81 million). We are going to increase volumes. It is of paramount importance to ensure road repair activities. The competition in the market of road building leads to a decrease in price of works and improvement in quality», he said.
According to the Prime Minister, there are also developments in the sphere of water transport, such as inland water transport, which can become an alternative to road transport.
«We need to restore river navigation. This is a key element of economic development and logistics of cargo that will also relieve pressure on roads», underlined the Prime Minister.
