Broadband access is an essential driver for the development of the Ukrainian economy and society, the head of the Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO) told the Digital Transformation Forum 2019 in Kyiv on 26 November.

The forum was organised with EU support to discuss international digitalisation trends, innovations and the topical question of how to transform Ukraine with the help of digital technologies.

The BRDO is funded by the European Union within the framework of the FORBIZ project and the EU4Business initiative, with the aim of simplifying the process of doing business and providing effective state regulation in key sectors of the economy.

Broadband development is a key priority of the EU’s EU4Digital initiative, and is one of the five pillars of the EU4Digital Telecom network (EaPeReg). In addition, under the EU4Digital broadband project, the EU supports the roll-out of broadband strategies in all six Eastern partner countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
