On 11 February, 2020, the working group on reforming state defence enterprise Ukroboronprom & state enterprises of military industrial complex and the State Service of export control has been launched at the Parliamentary Committee on National Security, Defence and Intelligence.
Lawmakers, representatives of state bodies and agencies, Ukroboronprom and the civil society partook in the meeting. Secretary General Olena Tregub represented NAKO. Ukroboronprom’s reforms, primarily corporatization and financial restructuring, were discussed. Ukroboronrpom’s Deputy Director General for Transformation Roman Bondar spoke on the need to reform the defence etnerprise due to OECD standards. Volodymyr Usov from the State space agency said that their key problems of are very close to the ones at Ukroboronprom. He said that corporatization was needed, along with focusing on space sector development, and not non-core assets. MP Ruslan Trebushkin suggested including to the legislative process the wider range of parlamentarians from different parties as well as experts. This idea was supported by the participants.
The working group will be later divided into two sub groups: one of them will deal with the reform of Ukroboronprom and state defence enterprises, the other one with the State service for export control.
