This was stated by the Prime Minister of the Opposition Government, Borys Kolesnikov, during a visit to the “Druzhkivska” confectionary factory (Kostiantynivsky district, Donetsk Oblast).
According to him, the company has the richest traditions, and its products are represented at many international exhibitions. The oppositionist noted that at the moment the food industry is the flagship of the Ukrainian economy.
“Unfortunately, in Ukraine, the food industry was treated frivolously for decades, especially in the Donbas: “There is a heavy industry, and the rest somehow sort it out. “Today, the food industry is the flagship of the Ukrainian economy. And the fact that the labor collective and traditions are preserved at this factory allows having hope for success,” Kolesnikov said.
The Prime Minister of the Opposition Government is confident that the last 4.5 years the Ukrainian power has deliberately not allowed lending to enterprises in Donetsk Oblast.
“Fortunately, this “wall” is now removed. I hope that this will be followed by the lifting of the economic and food blockade. Then enterprises will get new markets, and labor collectives will get new opportunities.”
Borys Kolesnikov is sure that for good small business development, there must be fewer organizations that control its work: “In addition to tax, there should not be any organization that can apply to the enterprise. I visited several enterprises with a turnover of tens of billions of dollars in South Korea. It was in 2011, and the last time they had a tax service in 1994. This is what large, medium and small business needs!” the oppositionist summed up.
