171017 Directory Brovchenko 2018 0In October 2017, the second issue of the “Ukrainian Technology: Ukrainian Private Sector Defense Industries” Directory was introduced to the public at the 14th edition of International Arms & Security Expo, Kyiv.

 

In his introductory remarks to the Directory, Yurii Brovchenko, Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine emphasized the contribution the Private Sector makes in developing defense industrial capabilities and capacities of Ukraine.

 

Ukrainian defense-industrial complex includes a few hundred enterprises that are involved in the manufacture of aircraft, armored vehicles, automotive, radio-electronic, and other types of equipment. Ukrainian defense industry is a large component of our economy, a strong player in international markets as well as a significant part of its private enterprises. It is evident that today, as never before, private sector plays an important role in equipping the army, in strengthening and enhancing our defense capabilities.

 

Ministry of Economic development and Trade of Ukraine supports synchronous development of the public and private sectors of the defense industry. During the last year, we managed to simplify working processes for private enterprises, establish cooperation between the public and private sector, and balance the interests of industry and the state customer.

The common initiatives of the state structures and industrial associations have resulted into progressive changes: the share of private sector in the state defense order is already more than 50 %, private enterprises successfully provide European defense standards and NATO standards, quality and competitiveness of their products are confirmed on the international exhibitions.

Undoubtedly, the contribution of the private sector to the development of the Ukrainian defense industry is difficult to overestimate. Suggested by the industry initiatives and innovations are already reflected in practical instruments of regulating public-private partnerships and other regulatory frameworks. I would like to notice the importance of private sector participation in the comprehensive reform of the defense industry in Ukraine, as foreseen by the State Program of Reform and Development of the Defense Industry in the mid-term. Ukraine has chosen the European vector of development, and on this path, we face the challenge of revision of many aspects of our work, in particular the bases of the production of armaments and military equipment and the defense industry management system in general. Simultaneously to changing approaches in the next five years, Ukraine will introduce the latest practical instruments, including automation of control and enterprise monitoring processes, reform of standardization system and product quality evaluation, etc.

 

I am sure, that by joint efforts, we will be able to achieve our main goal - to ensure the sustainable development of the defense-industrial complex and provide high level equipment of the Ukrainian Army.

 

YURII BROVCHENKO,

Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine
