USAID, Ukraine Government Work Together on Energy and Judicial Reform Programs

USAIDThe U.S. Agency for International Development has worked with Ukraine’s government to create several new programs designed to promote judicial reform and energy sector improvements in Ukraine.

Vice President Joe Biden announced that the programs are part of the $220 million U.S. government’s foreign assistance initiative to Ukraine, USAID said Wednesday.

The agency stated that it will establish a new energy independence project to help Ukraine attain reforms within its energy sector and develop competitive energy markets, as well as integrate into the European Union market, energy efficiency and global climate change mitigation among others.

USAID Administrator Gayle Smith and the Ukraine Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman have discussed constitutional changes adopted by Ukraine that will serve as the foundation for reforms within the country’s judicial system and what other actions can be done to strengthen the courts.
