The economy grew at a solid pace in the third quarter of last year, despite decelerating from the second quarter’s over two-year high expansion. Softer private consumption was largely behind the slowdown, although it remained healthy, nonetheless. On the upside, government consumption rebounded, while fixed investment growth jumped on upbeat construction activity and cheaper financing conditions. Moreover, the external sector buoyed the overall expansion amid soaring exports. Turning to the fourth quarter, momentum seemingly waned as industrial production plummeted in October–November. Meanwhile, the IMF announced a new three-year USD 5.5 billion arrangement to the country, which should cement financial stability this year. Furthermore, royalties from a new five-year gas transit contract with Russia, signed on 30 December, should provide additional support to the government’s accounts ahead.
From 2014 until early 2019, the Government undertook key reforms, including: carrying out significant fiscal consolidation, moving to a flexible exchange rate, reforming energy tariffs and social assistance, enhancing the transparency of public procurement, simplifying business regulations, stabilizing and restructuring the banking sector, moving forward on health and pension reforms, and establishing anti-corruption agencies.
Population 42,5 million, GDP (2018), current US$ 129.9 billion. Growth is seen broadly steady this year, supported by healthy fixed investment amid efforts to attract FDI and improve the business climate. Moreover, household spending should remain firm thanks to a tightening labour market and receding inflation. Downside risks stem from backtracking or slow implementation of reforms, which could bruise confidence. FocusEconomics panellists see GDP growth of 3.4% in 2020, which is up 0.2 percentage points from December 2019 forecast. In 2021, growth is seen edging up to 3.5%.
Consumer lending in Ukraine continues to see double-digit current value growth in gross lending and outstanding balance across all categories in 2019. Deferred demand, including strong caution as a result of the economic crisis of 2014/2015, and an increase in disposable incomes, as the economy continues to recover, support the fast growth in consumer lending at the end of the review period. Financial institutions in Ukraine are increasingly moving towards the online channel for lending purposes, in order to meet the growing demand for fast, convenient and secure loans. The fast development of online (including mobile) and contactless technology is highly visible in card lending and other online lendings.
