This is what Mr. Rybalka wrote on his Facebook page.
"This week, at the invitation of my American colleagues, I work in the US. The schedule is very tight; first of all I plan to discuss the prospects for Ukrainian reforms, especially in the financial sector." We are very interested in the US experience because the United States is inarguably one of the most developed financial markets in world," the politician stressed.
Mr. Rybalka is interested in the views of the American politicians, officials and representatives of the public sector on the prospects for the world economy and Ukrainian reforms, in particular. "It will be also interesting to talk about the domestic political situation in the United States," he added.
Serhiy Rybalka plans to tell his American colleagues "about the Radical Party's systemic work to promote economic reforms in Ukraine (industrial and financial packages)."
"I plan to meet with the US senators and congressmen who represent both key parties. Also the meetings are scheduled at the US Treasury, the International Monetary Fund (with the director and head of the mission in Ukraine), the International Republican Institute (IRI, the Eurasia Director and the head of the Ukrainian program) the head of the Heritage Foundation and the International Center for Private Enterprise, "he said.
The politician also plans to meet with famous American journalists.
"We need to have more allies worldwide. I believe that wise statesmen must constantly work to promote Ukraine's interests, we need to study the global experience and use it for the development of our country," Mr. Rybalka pointed out.
