Ukraine GDP grows 1.3% in 2Q16

Post by Admin on Wed Aug 17, 2016 9:46 am

Ukraine GDP grows 1.3% in 2Q16

Ukraine’s GDP grew 1.3% yoy in 2Q16 after 0.1% yoy growth in 1Q16, Concorde Capital informed clients, based on state statistics released on Aug. 15. The Cabinet of Ministers projects 2.0% yoy GDP growth this year, while the IMF anticipates 1.5% GDP growth.

Concorde analyst Alexander Paraschiy added: “The 2Q16 GDP increase was somewhat stronger than we expected, owing to delayed natural gas imports that improved external accounts in 2Q16 with subsequently stronger net exports. Given that external demand is not likely to recover in the near future, we do not expect much better real sector performance in 2H16. At the same time, we anticipate a substantial worsening of trade balance through the autumn months on the back of strengthened energy imports. Only the grain harvest, which is expected to grow by at least 5% yoy, is expected to underpin GDP growth in 2H16. Against this backdrop, we do not see the 2Q16 numbers as evidence for further acceleration and we are keeping our GDP forecast unchanged at 0.9% yoy growth for 2016.”....

Putin’s plan to destroy Ukraine economy fails

Russia Central bank’s former first deputy head Sergei Aleksashenko says Putin’s plan to destroy the Ukrainian economy has failed, Apostrof quotes him as saying to Ekho Moskvy radio Aug. 17.

The Crimea’s grab and war in Donbas hit Ukraine’s economy hard, causing a 25% downfall, the Russian expert says.

However, there was no catastrophe in Ukraine.

“The fall in Ukraine’s economy is over, and it grows for the second quarter by 1.2%. Ukraine’s economy has adapted to the shock in 2014 and 2015, and Moscow’s attempts to kill the Ukrainian economy misfired.

“There is no collapse in Ukraine. Still, I cannot say they are prospering there,” Aleksashenko says.

Everything depends on voters and multiple nuances that may be imposed. If the gain will go five or six factors, it can happen all ", - said Victor Yushchenko.
