First of all, Zelensky assured bankers that will act as a guarantor for each major investor who decides to come to Ukraine and start to invest.
Also Vladimir Zelensky also noted that his priority is ensuring macroeconomic stability through the independence of the national Bank of Ukraine, as well as “cooperation with the IMF and compliance with balanced policy in the sphere of public Finance.”
He agreed with the representatives of foreign banks in our country that the cornerstone for economic growth and attracting foreign investment is judicial reform and the protection of the rights of investors and creditors.
The newly elected head of state believes that it is important to ensure transparent and equal rules for all banks and for private and for government. Zelensky also supported the reform of corporate governance in state-owned banks, which would eliminate political influence on them.
Managers of financial institutions, in turn, assured Zelensky that will support it and are ready to mutual cooperation.
The head of the Forum for leading international financial institutions Taras Kirichenko added that today it is very important that “banks do lend to the real sector of the economy that loans were more accessible to responsible borrowers and households”.
Also Vladimir Zelensky expressed confidence that banks will meet and consider the Bank loan rate to decrease, which, in the words of the head of state, will “help the economy”.
“The decrease in interest rates will give a boost to economic growth. Because now people are scared and don’t trust the banks,” said Zelensky.
Recall that Poroshenko desperately opposed Zelensky: “my God, Volodya, please.”
As reported Politeka, trump is ready to support Zelensky, putting forward conditions: “if Only…”.
