Ukraine Reforms Watch (December 8, 2014)
On November 20, five Ukrainian political parties, including “Block of Petro Poroshenko”, “Samopomich”, “Batkivshyna”, “Radical party of Oleg Lyashko” and “Narodniy Front”, together comprising more than 60% of seats in the parliament, signed a final version of the Coalition Agreement. The document contained an outline of 17 key reforms that the new government and the parliament will have to implement. Overall, we believe that the proposed reforms definitely represent a step in the right direction, and will positively impact the Ukrainian economy as a whole. We present a short overview of the key planned reforms below. Furthermore, we will issue an update on the reforms’ implementation on a monthly basis.
