VERKHOVNA RADA CHAIRMAN ANDRIY PARUBIY VISITS UOP BOOTH AT EUROSATORY-2018

In the framework of the 26th international exhibition Eurosatory-2018, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Parubiy visited the booth of Ukrainian manufacturers, represented by the State Concern "UkrOboronProm"(UOP).

Andriy Parubiy inspected samples and models of weapons and military equipment of Ukrainian production. Having expressed gratitude to UOP employees, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine stated: "I am proud of Ukrainian manufacturers, honorably representing Ukraine at the world level."

According to him, Ukrainian manufacturers can count on support of legislative MIC initiatives.

On the initiative of UOP leadership, a working group has been created to develop a new version of the Law of Ukraine "On State Defense Order", that will increase the defense capability of Ukraine, improve planning and formation of the state defense order.

In addition, the State Concern prepared bills, envisaging corporatization of the State Enterprise "Antonov" and other state-owned enterprises of defense industry. Approval of these projects by the Verkhovna Rada will increase competitiveness of enterprises in foreign markets, making those attractive for investment.

At the same time, the bill on liberalization of import of products, works and services for defense purposes is under development. The document will enable state customers to independently import military products for their needs.
