  • New Monthly Enterprises Survey. Issue 12. (04.2023) Ukrainian Business in Wartime



    In April, enterprises showed their best results for the entire survey period and remained optimistic (albeit somewhat less than before) about the near future. The importance of "unsafe to work" as an obstacle to doing business has decreased. Assessments of the current situation in the country and the business activity at the enterprise have increased, and expectations, while remaining high, have become somewhat more restrained than a month ago. The dynamics of production indicators were the best for the entire survey period. Uncertainty over the six- and three-month horizons continues to decrease (excluding exports and employment). But the longer-term future remains unclear for business: uncertainty over the two-year horizon is high and increased slightly in April compared to May 2023. At the same time, the enterprises' plans for the next two years remain cautiously positive, and short-term expectations, although reduced, remain very optimistic.
