The World Bank has predicted a decline in real GDP of Ukraine, from 3.5% in 2018 to 2.9% in 2019, which is fundamentally different from the IMF forecasts for Ukraine after the launch of the new Stand-By Arrangement.
The World Bank published the relevant data in the report Global Economic Prospects on its official website.
Thus, according to the forecast table for the countries of Europe and Central Asia, the real GDP of Ukraine according to the results of 2018 is estimated at 3.5%. In 2019, Ukraine’s GDP is expected to drop to 2.9%. At the same time, Ukraine’s GDP in 2020 is projected to rise to 3.4%, and in 2021 – to 3.8%. (Ukrinform/Business World Magazine)
