    Macroeconomic Forecast Ukraine - A degree of stability remains

    Recent Ukrstat data confirm that Ukrainian economy stabilized to some degree over the last few months. Inflation went down, exchange rate fluctuated within narrow range, retail sales and industrial production stopped falling. This is expected to allow economic activity to increase slightly in the second half of 2015 and limit the drop in GDP to around 9%.

    Year 2014: Economic Summary for Ukraine "A year of crisis and new opportunities "

    In 2014, Ukraine faced the toughest challenges in the XXI century including economic crisis, military conflict in the East, and annexation of Crimea by Russia. Drop in domestic demand and weak external demand resulted in contraction of real GDP by 6.8%. High economic and political uncertainty resulted in sharp increase in demand for foreign currency.

    Stabilisation is near but growth is far

    The economic situation in Ukraine in 2015 and 2016 will depend on progress in externally supported reform program and on stabilization in the Eastern Ukraine. To take into account higher than expected hryvnia depreciation and resulting inflation in the first quarter of 2015 the IER revised its forecast of real GDP.

    Macroeconomic Forecast Ukraine Is there any light in the tunnel?

    The instability in the Ukraines economy increased. Low international reserves do not allow the NBU to effectively intervene in the interbank foreign exchange market, which suffers from low FX supply against the background of exports decline, panic and speculations. As a result, hryvnia exchange rate sharply depreciated putting additional pressure on budget due to large share of FX debt. To secure the economic development the Government faces the necessity to implement immediate steps aimed primarily at the fiscal consolidation measures. Otherwise, it might lose a chance to ensure stabilization of Ukraines economy and to spark recovery in 2016.

    Macroeconomic Forecast Ukraine quarterly issue - Long path to recovery

    Military conflict in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts (Donbas) is assumed to continue at least until the end of 2016. As a result, economic activity in the region will be depressed over the two years, while infrastructure will be restored only partially in the end of 2016. Many companies will remain closed and supply links will remain disrupted limiting potential for recovery. Trade with Russia is expected to fall further. Very limited financing options contribute to lower investments in 2015 and allow for only small increase in 2016, when political and economic uncertainty will somewhat reduce.
