"Now we should sign the Memorandum with all participants (in decentralization reforms), representatives of local government. We should develop a clear action plan," Groysman said.
He stressed that the first stage of the reform had already took place. Local government bodies now have needed powers and financial resources.
Groysman thanked the president, MPs, international partners for their support in carrying out this reform and added that further actions include the formation of a regulatory framework for the administrative and territorial system, the creation of a system of self-government based on the basis of united communities.
“Our ultimate goal is a widespread local self-government with self-sufficient and strong communities. We should draw up a stable strategy for our state development, based on a strong local self-government that is focused on citizens and their needs,” the prime minister stressed.
