In particular, we have a record of 27 thousand economically active entrepreneurs taking January data. For 21 days of February we fix a growth by 27 thousand entrepreneurs. The economy is growing, this means that we have laid rather good basis", stressed the Prime Minister.
He noted that 91% of those businesses that terminated their activities after raising the minimum wage, had not engage in any economic activity and failed to pay taxes.
The Head of Government highlighted that Ukraine's economy in the 4th quarter of 2016 had showed a fairly good signal of growth at 4.7%.

This is the only way to bring the country out of the crisis", underscored Volodymyr Groysman.
