Ukraine's economy is growing at a faster pace than international financial institutions forecast, and this year the wages in Ukraine will reach the pre-crisis level in dollar equivalent. This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko on the TV channel NewsOne.
"As a result of the military actions that Russia waged, annexation and occupation of part of Ukraine's territory, our state has lost a rather significant part of its economic potential. In 2013, the International Monetary Fund anticipated that Ukraine will regain its economic potential only in 2022. But, we can say already today that the salary level in 2019 in dollar equivalent will reach a pre-crisis, pre-war level of 2013", the Deputy Prime Minister said.
"Three years ago, the minimum wage in Ukraine amounted $50, and today it has already tripled. That is, the Ukrainian economy demonstrates a faster growth performance than international financial institutions predicted", said Pavlo Rozenko.
