Concrete measures to implement the national reform agenda and international agreements
A reform of economic policy and the management of public finances is conducted, and the process of decentralisation continues. The responsible ministries and Parliament adopt EU standards and improve their transparency, efficiency and accountability.
Ukraine wants to further integrate its economy into the EU internal market. To reach this goal the country signed an Association Agreement with the European Union. At the end of 2014 the Government of Ukraine published an action plan with details on how the country plans to implement the agreements that were made with the European Union, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
