The consumer confidence index in Ukraine in July rose to 88 on a 200-point scale. This is the highest rate since August 2013 – the period shortly before the start of the Revolution of Dignity.
At the same time, the highest growth was shown by indices of current personal income, as well as expectations of economic growth in the coming year and the next 5 years.
Such expectations are supported by the economic performance of Ukraine.
Thus, the growth rate of real gross domestic product in the second quarter of 2019 accelerated to 4.6% compared to the second quarter of 2018. This is the highest number since 2011. In addition, it is the highest level in Eastern Europe.
Thus, it is expected that the Ukrainian economy will grow for at least 3% for the second year in a row.
The new Ukrainian government plans to reach the country’s GDP growth rate of at least 5-7% per year.
Retail sales in Ukraine since the beginning of 2019 increased by 7.8%, the average real salary – by 8.1%.
Foreign direct investment in Ukraine has grown by 2.6% since the beginning of the year.
The exchange rate of Ukrainian national currency hryvnia against the US dollar has strengthened by 9% since the beginning of the year – this is the best performance among all world currencies.
