In 2018, the Ukrainian economy will grow by 3%, while inflation will be 7%.
This forecast was voiced by Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman in the air of “Ukrainian radio”.
“We expect next year of 3 percent growth (GDP) at 7 percent inflation. We expect growth in real incomes of Ukrainian citizens”, – said Groisman.
He hoped that the people’s deputies soon will finally pass laws that will accelerate the retirement, medical, agricultural and educational reforms.
The Prime Minister reminded that because of the war in the Donbass Ukraine lost 20% of GDP, and the region needs to recover.
We will remind, earlier it was reported, the Ukrainian economy fell by 50%, and there are no prerequisites and factors for its growth.Comments about this ГолосUA, said an expert on economic issues Vsevolod Stepanyuk.
“GDP growth is 2.4 %, which says state statistics, is not sufficient to Ukraine out of the crisis and on the path of development. Suspicious that GDP growth in the first quarter also amounted to 2.4%. The coincidence is very interesting, as the economy is seasonal in nature. She usually never showed the same growth in the first and second quarter. I think that this figure reflects the political demands of the Cabinet of Ministers. They need to show progress and they just drew this figure,” said Victor Stepaniuc.
It was also reported that by the end of this year due to the devaluation of the national currency inflation in Ukraine will amount to 20%. This commentary, ГолосUA said economist Andrew Novak.
“By the end of 2017 due to the devaluation of the national currency inflation in Ukraine will amount to 20%. Due to the inflation of the citizens had already deteriorated consumer sentiment. In the first half she is almost 16%. However, the inflation for consumer goods has more than significant growth. Accordingly, the Ukrainians expect further growth of prices”,- said A. Novak.
