In March, Ukraine will take a political decision - on what standard to build concrete roads: American or European. Volodymyr Omelyan, the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine stated the above during the participation in the seminar «Modern American Road Construction Technologies». George P. Kent, the Deputy Chief of the US Diplomatic Mission in Ukraine, Martin Claessens, Senior Commercial Officer of the Embassy of the United States of America in Ukraine, Slawomir Nowak, Head of the State Agency of Ukrainian Roads and representatives of U.S. concrete roads construction companies took part in the event.
Volodymyr Omelyan noted that in recent years Ukraine has invested in reconstruction and construction of Ukrainian highways a record amount of funds - billions of dollars: “A new era is beginning for Ukraine - the era of concrete roads. We study the best European and American practices in the design and construction of concrete roads. Today, we can see presentations of top American companies for the construction of concrete roads. We need American experience, and today we have the opportunity to adopt the best American practices. I hope that today's seminar will give a new impetus to the development of concrete roads. American companies have experience of cooperation with Ukraine in other spheres and I hope that in the nearest future we will see this cooperation in the road sector as well.”
