“It was done. It is now 12 quarters in a row, Ukraine’s economy is growing. If you look at the results that we have achieved over the previous four years, of course, but it is unusual. Inflation – less than 10%. Foreign exchange reserves today are the highest in the last five years. If we talk about the macroeconomic situation, it is quite stable today,” said Markarov.

The Minister believes that if the Ukrainian economy will grow at current rates, it will overtake Poland in 50 years, however, Ukraine could make faster. “This, of course, for us too long. And we definitely plan to have recipes like to do to catch up,” said the head MinFin.
