On Monday, November 19, our team attended the event “Novoye Vremia. Dialogues about the future” with William Taylor, Pavlo Sheremeta and Dmytro Kulyba. The discussion was devoted to the issues of cooperation of Ukraine within the Kyiv-Washington-Brussels triangle.
During the meeting, William Taylor expressed his support for Ukraine, emphasizing necessity of the country's economic development.
“For the benefit of both, the international community and Ukraine, and to achieve success, trust is important. First of all, trust of the citizens. This is the main message. And it is less about the personalities, but more about the time to take serious measures in the current situation,” he said.
The fight against corruption is the main task for Ukraine, emphasized the former US ambassador.
“Many Ukrainian magnates are not businessmen at all. They made their fortunes from cutting behind-the-scenes deals with politicians, and now they are using these funds to gain permanent access to the state budget. This has to be stopped”; “Investing is a sign of confidence; Ukraine does not have it yet. One has to take actions, not words, to reach the crucial point and attract investors.”
Magonova & Partners is grateful to Novoye Vremia for the series of meetings “Dialogues about the Future,” where Ukraine’s global issues were discussed. We believe that a constructive discussion step by step leads to the development of a new country.
