Most managers (78%) consider the current investment climate unfavorable, and this figure has increased significantly since the beginning of the year - by 16%. Another 16% of respondents consider the current investment to be climate neutral. Only 6% of respondents view the investment climate as favorable.

As we reported earlier, according to the National Bank of Ukraine, the upcoming lockdown, which was previously announced by the government, will not significantly affect the country's inflation rate.

"By the estimates of the National Bank, the quarantine announced for January 2021 by the government, will not considerably affect the economic activity, consumers' demand and, ergo, the inflation," reads the message.
