DiXi Group Think Tank President Olena Pavlenko and Program Manager Roman Nitsovych took part in the Second Ukrainian Gas Forum.
The experts participated in discussions on introduction of a law on the gas market and in a discussion of the reform of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine.
"The discussion demonstrated that we are making progress. And the fact that many more participants came to the second forum than last year is the indication of our movement in the right direction", said Olena Pavlenko when sharing her impressions of the event.
"Such forums are a valuable playground for information and opinions sharing about the reforms process. In particular, concerning the talk about "Naftogaz" restructuring, it is an opportunity to frankly identify the obstacles and ways to overcome them taking into consideration the interests of not only the market players but also consumers", Roman Nitsovych emphasized.
The organizers of the event stated that the Second Gas Forum took place during the period of implementation of a new gas market model. The reform began in April 2015 with the adoption of the Law "On Natural Gas Market", but – in their opinion – at present, Ukraine is still far from a really competitive natural gas market.
