Economy Minister Aivaras Abromavicius has not been offered to remain in the Cabinet under Volodymyr Hroisman as Prime Minister. Abromavicius said this to Segodnia newspaper, Censor.NET informs.
"No, I haven't received such offers. But as you can see, yesterday he (Hrosiman - ed.) said that three candidates he wanted to work with (in the new Cabinet - ed.) all are employees of our ministry. Ivan Mikloš has worked as my part-time adviser on economic policy for more than a year, and that of Natalie Jaresko on the tax reform. Another two candidates that were named are technocrat reformers from my ministry whom I hired and who had showed that they are result-oriented and have some good results," Abromavicius said.
The minister said he was not going to remain in politics after resigning from the Cabinet.
"As of now, nothing indicates that I am going to be in politics. However, I think there is some demand for the right-center direction, reform-oriented one... I am close to business, I've been attracting large investments to the region, including Ukraine, for more than 20 years. I have managed large projects and that's what I like. If conditions in Ukraine continue to improve, if we have a reform-oriented, technocratic Cabinet that will continue doing the right things, I will attract investments to our country with great pleasure and success," Abromavicius said.
