Hryvnia exchange rate can be more flexible

It is economically reasonable to develop a flexibility of the national currency in Ukraine, president of the Ukrainian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs Anatoly Kinakh said during the Union board meeting, ForUm correspondent reports.
According to him, the stability of financial system or national currency unit can not be a subject of the current market condition. “Such a serious indicator as the stability of hryvnia affects the lives of every citizen, and it should never be a political “bargaining chip,” the expert noted.
He added that the currency exchange rate and the monetary policy of the National Bank of Ukraine should always contain very smart and projected measures, especially given the situation on the domestic market, where about 52% of domestic and 48% of imported products are consumed.

Civilized circulation of financial papers should be developed

Introduction of modern civilized circulation of financial papers in Ukraine is rather timely, president of the Ukrainian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs Anatoly Kinakh said during the Union board meeting, ForUm correspondent reports.

According to the economist, a financial bill as evidence of debt is a common practice of the civilized world, which can be effective in our country as well. “This issue is very important, since many domestic enterprises lack working capital, and expensive credit resources are not available to them,” the expert said.
 
So he generally supports the proposals stipulated in the draft law on amendments to some legislative acts of Ukraine on improving procedures for financial bills. However, it is very important that the Parliament and the Cabinet take into account many principled details, the head of Union added.

He noticed that, together with the adoption of the relevant legislation, Cabinet should work on the order of the circulation of bills.

“It should be taken into account that if a taxpayer receives bill from the state, he should have the right to pay with it for current obligations to the budget, particularly in the payment of import and import value-added tax. This procedure should include control of discounting bills of exchange, their circulation in banks,” the economist said.
