On August 26, the Logistics Committee of the Association held a round table discussion on the draft law № 1196-1 “On Railway Transport of Ukraine”.
This draft law is one of the top legislative initiatives that businesses are most looking forward to passing. The railway industry needs a new pro-European model of the transport market. And it is the new profile draft law that should consolidate the new model of relations in this area.
The participants of the round table discussed the prospects of adopting the draft law, its main provisions, comments and suggestions from business. Its adoption is expected to help liberalize the rail freight market and begin reforming Ukraine’s railway sector.
The event was joined by the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Subcommittee on Railway Transport, representatives of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine and JSC “Ukrzaliznytsia”.
