Wage growth finally outpaced the growth of prices.

Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman said about the growth of the average wage in March of this year.

“The good news. According to state statistics, the average salary of full-time employee in Ukraine in March 2017 amounted to UAH 6752. That’s twice the minimum wage and 8.7% more than in February. This growth is consistent with growth in industrial production, which in March rose more than 8%,” – wrote the Prime Minister on his page in Facebook.

And this is what we want: economic growth be converted into real benefit for every Ukrainian,” said Groisman.
