The First Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yulia Svyrydenko said this during the national TV marathon dedicated to the Day of Unity, reports a correspondent of Ukrinform.

According to the minister, the first such project is a program aimed at strengthening Ukrainian exports. The recently signed free trade agreement with Turkey will help improve export performance. The document is currently awaiting ratification by the Verkhovna Rada.

“Reducing energy dependency is also very important to us. We will therefore officially announce the start of a major thermal modernization program by the end of the month. At least 5,000 buildings will be modernized and renovated this year. Our ambitious goal is 50,000 thermally modernized buildings in the first years of program implementation. The task is to reduce gas imports and channel the savings to more important projects for Ukrainians,” the First Deputy Prime Minister said.

Svyrydenko also announced the launch of the 5% mortgage program for Ukrainians. Such a housing rental program for certain categories already existed, but it will now benefit from new conditions and additional funding. The police will become its first participants in mid-February.

“It is very important to start an irrigation program in order to change the approaches to agriculture in the south of the country. The government will adopt a corresponding resolution on Wednesday. Odessa, Mykolayiv and Kherson regions will start preparing design and estimate documentation for the construction and reconstruction of canals, which could start in March-April,” Svyrydenko said.

The official also mentioned the reduction of the public sector of the economy, the development of the capital market, the development of entrepreneurship, the continuation of the state program of affordable loans 5-7-9% and the launch of a leasing program for mechanical engineering and shipbuilding among the priorities. .

“Thanks to these measures, we hope to preserve economic stability and ensure the economic development of our state,” Svyrydenko concluded.
