 Parliament to start consideration of state budget Dec. 17, - Hroisman

Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman stated that the Ukrainian parliament will begin considering the budget Dec. 17.

Hroisman wrote this on Facebook yesterday, Censor.NET reports.

He wrote: "We will start consideration of the budget for 2016 tomorrow (Dec. 17 - ed).

"We are under tight deadlines as the budget and related bills were submitted by the government last Friday. But we have to find a possible compromise even in these tight time limits, first of all concerning the social protection of small and medium-sized enterprises and, in my opinion, decentralization.

"Concerning decentralization: I have already started holding consultations with the Ministry of Finance on this issue. We have taken decisions that launched fiscal decentralization last year. The first positive effects of that decision have been experienced at the local level - local authorities obtained additional opportunities to solve everyday problems of communities," Hroisman stressed.
