The ambassadors of the Group of Seven (G7) countries called for the adoption of laws that would strengthen the effectiveness and independence of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine.
«We also encouraged the adoption of laws to ensure a strong and independent Anti-Monopoly Committee and to improve corporate governance of SOEs, in line with OECD guidelines», – the G7 said in a statement posted on its official Twitter account on August 1.
The day before, G7 ambassadors met with Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal to discuss measures to support Ukraine by foreign partners and the state of reforms in our country.
As a reminder, on July 25, the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Economic Development recommended by a majority vote that the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopt the Draft Law of Ukraine «On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine on Improving the Activities of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine» (Reg. No. 5431) in the second reading and in general with technical and legal revisions. At the same time, on July 25, the second reading of the draft law in the parliamentary session hall was interrupted due to an air raid alert.
