Results of the roundtable "Post-conflict multi-vector model of Ukrainian economy: strategies and forecasts of development" (22.6.2015, Zaporizhzhya)
On June 22, 2015, a round table "Post-conflict multi-vector model of Ukrainian economy: strategies and development forecasts" was held. The round table was devoted to discussion of the major trends in the Ukrainian economy, caused by the armed conflict, as well as to designation of their possible solutions in the economic aspect.
Radical political and economic changes that have taken place in 2013-2014, have pinned down Ukraine to the fact of impossibility of further economic cooperation with its traditional partners. Annexation of Crimea, and military conflict on the territory of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions are making restoration of traditional economic ties with Russia very unlikely. In addition, cooperative ties with former Soviet republics that have remained from the USSR era bear the effect of scientific and technical slowdown, since because of their backwardness there are no incentives for development of new technologies.
The objective of Ukraine at this stage is to diversify its economic relations in a way to be able to maximally use both, viable post-Soviet ties, and to create new ones with a view to effective integration of Ukraine's economy into the global economy.
The round table participants have particularly noted negative effect that is being triggered by the absence of scientifically based economic policy of cooperation with occupied territories. At adopting of thesis about the impossibility of solving conflict by military means, struggle for people comes to the fore rather than struggle for the territory. However, at the moment, actions of the Ukrainian government are aimed at segregation and separation, which leads to a variety of negative economic, social and international implications.
Participants of the roundtable noted that building of post-conflict multi-vector model of the economy of Ukraine is impossible without taking into account the factor of corruption, which is currently ultra-high in Ukraine.
A list of tools has been proposed, philosophy of building of a multi-vector model of Ukraine’s economy has been grounded, and the list of stages of economic modeling (situational modeling) has been reviewed as a result of discussions.
