Accordingly, we will adjust its activity by the end of the year and elaborate the legislative and financial changes for the coming years. And I think that next year we will come back to Kharkiv to open the European integration office together,” Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba announced during a working visit to Kharkiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

As the Vice Prime Minister noted, the offices will be set up to attract investment and promote European values ​​at the regional level and provide training for the united territorial communities’ managers on the development of programs with the European Union.
