Israeli road construction company Shapir intends to open a representative office in Ukraine and participate in tenders for the repair and construction of Ukrainian roads, Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan wrote on Facebook.
”This was preceded by several months of negotiations, familiarizing their experts with the realities and potential of our market. A few foreign motorway construction companies are on the way. We break the monopoly of no-names and traditional participants of all tenders. Our condition is legal registration and payment of taxes in Ukraine, new jobs,” the minister said.
Omelyan said that now it is up to Parliament – to vote for the establishment of the Road Fund.
As UNIAN reported earlier, in October 2016, the government expects to submit to the parliament a draft law on the establishment of the Road Fund. The Fund will be the main accumulator of resources to be allocated for road works.
