The World Bank left the forecast for Ukraine’s GDP growth in 2021 at 3.8% but improved it for the next two years.
This is stated in the World Bank’s report “Competition and Firm Recovery Post-Covid-19. Europe and Central Asia Economic Update. Fall 2021”.
According to the organization’s forecasts, Ukraine’s GDP will grow by 3.5% in 2022 and by 3.7% in 2023.
“Activity should continue recovering in H2, helped by better harvests, strengthening consumer demand and a supportive external environment,” reads the document.
As noted, the forecast takes into account the possibility of further temporary COVID-19 lockdowns.
