Groysman: the Economy is growing, but not enough

The growth of Ukraine’s GDP by 2.4% in the second quarter of this year is insufficient. This was stated by Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman at a conference in the river.

“The results of the second quarter of 2.4% of GDP growth. That is, the economy is growing. But that’s not enough. Our mission is to increase this figure”, – said the Prime Minister.

Recall, as reported by the state statistics service, real GDP in the II quarter of 2017 compared to the previous quarter (adjusted for seasonal factors) increased by 0.6%, while compared to II quarter of 2016 – increased by 2.4%.

We will remind, earlier the national Bank of Ukraine (NBU) has revised its forecast of real GDP growth of Ukraine in 2017, reducing it to 1.6%. At the same time. NBU forecasts for 2018 almost coincide with forecasts of the world Bank – the regulator expects a 3.5% growth of the Ukrainian economy.
