Шмыгаль положительно оценивает создание "свободных экономических зон" на Донбассе

Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal believes that the creation of “free economic zones” (zones of priority development) in the Donbass will allow you to recover the territory from the point of view of business.

As UKRINFORM reports, he told about it in interview Radio Freedom.

“With regard to creating an attractive environment for business (I don’t even say now that the investors), which will come to the territory, temporarily occupied for today, which will come to the areas which are now located at the demarcation line, we have several directions. That is, of course, tax privileges, certain preferences in terms of a starting and running of there business. The vision and concept for today is. Specific steps the Ministry of economy together with the Ministry of reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories will develop and submit”, – said the head of government.

“This is the strategy and the way should give the opportunity to revive these areas from the point of view of business, creating jobs, filling local budgets”, – he added.

According to Smagala, zones of priority development – it’s a 15-20 kilometer area within the demarcation line.

“Zones of priority development of the areas that require specific incentives for business to create jobs. Today we can talk about the creation of such zones in some border from the boundary line. For example, a 15-kilometer area, maybe 20-kilometer zone. We believe these things now. And I will present them”, – said Smigel.

As reported previously, the newly appointed head of the Ukrainian delegation in the Trilateral contact group on settlement in the Donbass Leonid Kravchuk, speaking about the compromise on ORDO that he is ready to go, said that we can talk about the “special system” in these regions and the free economic zone in them so that not to sacrifice the sovereignty and independence of the state.
