The adoption of the law "On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine" On Industrial Parks ", aimed at attracting investments in the industrial sector of the economy, will fully launch the mechanism of industrial parks in Ukraine, which has become a key instrument of economic development in many countries of the world. Deputy Minister of Economy of Ukraine Irina Novikova spoke about this during an open dialogue between business and government representatives: "Industrial parks 2025. Why invest in production."
The event was also attended by the Minister of Community and Territorial Development Alexey Chernyshev, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on Economic Development Dmitry Natalukha, founder of UFUTURE holding and Belaya Tserkov industrial park Vasily Khmelnitsky, as well as international experts and business representatives.
“Industrial parks should become not just regional industrial sites, but real points of growth for the state's economy. The effective use of this mechanism will contribute to the growth of related sectors of the economy, the development of human capital and a complete restart of industry in Ukraine. This is primarily about the development of an innovative industry, new technological solutions, because only there we can compete with other countries in the international arena. The adoption of the new law opened a new history in the development of this mechanism in Ukraine and, I hope, in the near future it will begin to work effectively, "said Irina Novikova.
The Minister of Community and Territorial Development Oleksiy Chernyshov noted that the development of industrial parks will create modern jobs in Ukraine and stop labor migration. According to him, now the state receives part of the added value that Ukrainian labor migrants create while working in other countries - thanks to their remittances.
“However, it is many times more effective when this added value is created within Ukraine. Therefore, this is now a priority of the state, ”the minister emphasized, adding that in order for a Ukrainian worker to return to the country, modern technological jobs with a salary of 4-5 thousand hryvnias higher than the average in the regions are needed now. Such jobs are created in industrial parks, he summed up.
