The Feb. 17 appointment marks the increasing influence of Firtash under Yanukovych’s presidency.

Established in 2005, the council says it plays a central role in forming state policies. In a statement on Feb. 20, Firtash said that his aim as head of the council will be to establish “social dialogue” with government, which is a “European practice.”

“Today, in a period of economic and financial crisis, we see how much the role of such institutes is increasing in Europe” to find a compromise between the interests of business and government, Firtash said. “The sooner the National Tripartite Social and Economic Council finds answers to the most pressing problems, the sooner a single view on how to develop Ukraine will be formed.”
