He noted that the expenditure of investment activity of Ukrainian companies, improvement of the financial capacity of households, and the increase of export to the EU countries helped to boost the development of the Ukrainian industry.
According to Kubiv, the industrial production of investment goods grew by 3.4%, the output of durable consumer goods - by 3.7%, and the production of intermediate goods – by 3.4%.
He also noted that shortage of production occurred only in two industrial groups: non-durable consumer goods (-0.5%) due to the high output in the period of comparison and energy (-8.7%) due to logistic problems in Donbas.
Kubiv also said that the possibility of a deficit of coke for the steel industry and the increase of production cost are the risk factors.
As it was reported earlier, Ukraine’s industrial production in September decreased by 0.3% compared to last year.
