KYIV, UKRAINE, UKRAINE, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The magazine “Vlast deneg” (Power of Money) published the list of Ukraine’s most successful investors. Burisma Group made it as the company with most effective projects.
“Assessing the success, we took into account the amount of income, taxes and fees paid for the past two years, companies’ leading positions in relevant sectors, as well as their impact on the socio-economic situation in the country,” says the editorial. We wanted the ranking to represent a wide geography of companies and, if possible, a wide range of industries, as our goal was to put together the list of top 20 companies with growing influence on the Ukrainian economy. “
“We are proud that the Group has not only made the list of TOP 20 companies successfully investing in Ukraine, but it was the only company from the oil & gas industry. We at Burisma attribute this success to the immense work carried out over the past two years, following the Board of Directors decision to adopt an ambitious program called the “Billion Strategy”. It involves investing more than UAH 1 billion in drilling, tax payments to budgets of all levels in the amount of more than UAH 5 billion and natural gas production of over 1 billion cubic meters, ” noted the Adviser to the Board of Directors at Burisma Group Vadym Pozharskyi.
To date, the Group plays a vital part in the socio-economic development of local communities. This year, decentralization of rent has allowed local budgets to receive 5% of rent for oil & gas production. In 2018, Kharkiv region alone will receive UAH 465 million, and by 2020 the annual income will amount to UAH 570 million.
With support from local communities, this allows the Group to consistently invest in change, building roads, repairing schools and hospitals, as well as to strive for energy independence both at state and local levels.
