“We set the forecast of the economic growth at 3% of the GDP, and I think this growth can be made bigger, but a number of parliamentary decisions are needed. The 3% GDP growth means that Ukraine will produce $15 billion worth more than in 2017. It will mean more job opportunities, market saturation, and bigger export, which will positively influence the national currency,” Groysman believes.
According to him, the GDP can grow by over 5%, but a number of laws must be accepted so that the necessary new mechanisms are introduced.
The Prime Minister also added that this year’s state budget is “more concentrated than the budget of 2017, which is a positive thing”.
