One of the primary indicators of economic growth and well-being of citizens will be increase of minimum wage, as well as improvement average earning up 10,000 hryvnias in 2018. This statement was issued by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during a meeting with regional media.
"For next year, 2018, we project growth of minimum wage by another UAH 500, to UAH 3,723. It would be more possible to raise wage under condition of economic upturn. But one more question is to bring the average salary in 2018 up to UAH 10,000 - at the same currency rate and prices as today. Today we have a figure that stands at UAH 7400. I think, by the end of next year we can reach UAH 10,000," summed up the Prime Minister.
