    The aim of the meeting, which was part of a study visit by Ukraine’s senior civil servants and MPs, was to discuss Polish aid projects addressed to Ukraine.

    “Ukraine is among the priority countries of Poland’s development cooperation. Our assistance includes working together with the Ukrainian government on implementing reforms that are not only necessitated by the EU association process, but that also meet expectations of Ukrainian society,” said the deputy chief of Polish diplomacy. “It is very important that enterprises, especially micro and small ones, become more competitive in the course of Ukraine’s social and economic transition. Therefore, a major aim of our assistance measures is to strengthen the local private sector,” she added. In 2016, Poland allocated PLN 95 million worth of support to Ukraine.

     

     

    Deputy Minister Wronecka went on to highlight the key role of education in Ukraine’s systemic transformation. “Scholarship policy remains an important tool of supporting Ukraine. Over 30,000 Ukrainian nationals are enrolled at Polish universities. Of this number, 7,500 receive support from the Polish side,” said the deputy foreign minister.

     

    The study visit to Poland of Ukrainian senior civil servants and MPs was organized as part of the “Credit for Agricultural Producers” project. It is financed by USAID and implemented by the World Council of Credit Unions in cooperation with Poland’s National Association of Co-operative Savings and Credit Unions (KSKOK) and the Foundation for Co-operative Education. The project’s aim is to support legislative reform of Ukraine’s credit union sector.
