Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych
"Now the task is not to lose the potential we obtained. We have every opportunity to increase tourist flows to Ukraine and to further develop our infrastructure," he said in Kyiv on Thursday, while speaking at an official reception to mark the end of Euro 2012.
Yanukovych said new transport links would help strengthen relations and cooperation between different regions in Ukraine.
He said that after Euro 2012 Ukraine should prepare for the European basketball championship in 2015, which will be held in several cities across the country, and conduct serious work to win the right to host the Winter Olympic Games in 2022 in the Carpathian region.
