The prime minister noted: "It will be a great honor for me to work with Mr. Balcerowicz and Mr. Mikloš. I believe the Cabinet of Ministers shares the same opinion. I would like to say that the majority of ministers are determined to implement reforms in the country."

"Ukraine's development is much better than it is pictured abroad. I have to show these achievements that are not always noticed by the West," Leszek Balcerowicz said.

The Polish reformer stated he would, inter alia, work with western investors and politicians in order to outline real situation in Ukraine and show its achievements on the track of reforms.

Ivan Mikloš emphasized that Ukraine has significant unused potential. "Our goal is not to create a parallel structure, but to help Ukrainian reformers overcome challenges," he noted.
