With an average annual GDP growth rate of 3%, Ukraine will reach the pre-crisis level at best in 2022. This was written by the MP from the Opposition Bloc Serhiy Lovochkin on his Twitter account. The politician stressed that at the beginning of 2018 the real gross domestic product of our country would be 12% below the level of 2013 (in comparable data without the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (ARC) and the ATO zone).
“At the beginning of 2018, Ukraine’s real GDP will be 12% below the 2013 level (in comparable data without the ARC and the ATO zone). At an average annual rate of even 3%, the country will close the gap with the pre-crisis period at best until 2022. It is necessary to change the current power to professionals,” the oppositionist wrote.
Recall, according to preliminary estimates of the NBU, in 2017 the economy grew by 2.1%. This is worse than last year’s result of 2.4%. Dollar GDP currently is about $ 110 billion or 60% of the level of 2013. At the end of 2017, GDP per capita in Ukraine in current dollars amounted to 20% of the level of Poland.Follow @serhiylovochkin
