    Highlight: BUDGET-2019
    On October 18, the Parliament approved the 2019 Draft State Budget Law in the first reading. The Ministry of Finance and the Verkhovna Rada Budget Committee succeeded to maintain key fiscal indicators rather realistic. This was difficult, as the MPs submitted more than two thousands amendments to the initial draft.

    Highlight: MACRO OUTLOOK
    Over the recent weeks, the discussions on the macroeconomic outlook for Ukraine were high on the agenda taking into account high external and domestic risks. The FX payments on state debt are high for next several years, while the NBU was not able to increase international reserves to more safe level.

    Highlight: CUSTOMS REFORM
    The full-scale implementation of the customs reform in Ukraine has not been implemented. Therefore, customs clearance in the country remains lengthy and complicated, which is reflected in Ukraines low positions in comparative international rankings. A new annual survey of exporters and importers in Ukraine conducted by the IER shows that a customs reform that would bring more transparency and reduce bureaucracy is necessary.

    Monthly Economic Monitor Ukraine No.5 (211)

    Intellectual property (IP) protection and enforcement when done right are one of the fundamental conditions for innovation and competition. Ukraines strategic documents (in particular, Ukraine-2020 Strategy) list protection of IP rights among policy priority. However, the implementation of IP-related reforms remains slow. This was noticed by the Western partners of Ukraine (both the USA and the EU), that are expecting radical changes in the field of IPR protection and enforcement.

    Highlight: GAS MARKET
    Late February was marked by the victory celebration at the Ukrainian gas market as Ukrainian Naftogaz won the case on gas transit against the Russian Gazprom at the Stockholm Arbitrage Court. Together with almost USD 2 bn that the Naftogaz owes the Gazprom in the gas case, the Naftogaz net win is USD 2.6 bn. However, already on March 1, 2018, Russia used the same tactic against Ukraine as it did in 2009: refusing to supply gas to the country. Ukraine faced gas shortage.

    Monthly Economic Monitor Ukraine No.2 (208)

    During many years, healthcare system remained one of the least reformed in Ukraine. Quality of healthcare was going down and the system was mired in corruption and unofficial payments. Ukrainians often complain about costs of healthcare services and medicines. As a result, the necessity of healthcare reform was clear, but there was no agreement on the best path forward.

    Monthly Economic Monitor Ukraine No.1 (207)

    Highlight: YEAR 2017
    2017 was a year of hopes that had a mixed record in coming true.Economic recovery was lower than previously expected: real GDP is estimated to grow at about 2.2% in 2017. Low growth is partially explained by the blocked of trade with the occupied part of Donbas. Inflation was significantly higher than the NBU target due to rapid increase in minimum wage and growth of commodity prices.

    On July 10, 2017, Ryanair, the largest low-cost airline in Europe, announced that it cancels its plans to enter Ukraine due to the failure to agree the contract with Boryspil airport. The decision was a negative blow to the image of Ukraine aiming to prove that the country is open and friendly to foreign investors.
