Ukraine. Turn to Growth. Investment Climate Outlook - Mid 2017
2016 was a year of macroeconomy stabilization in Ukraine. This year shows the expected growth. Much of this progress reflects the authorities’ efforts and proves the viability and prospects of the chosen path of economic reform. The government has pursued a policy aimed at deregulating entrepreneurial activity, improving the business climate, optimizing public sector governance, and ensuring the harmonization of national legislation with EU legislation. As a result capital investment in the first half of 2017 exceeded pre-crisis level, the net FDI amounted to $1,156 million and was mostly directed towards the real sector of the economy. The 1H 2017 also brought numerous significant transactions and announcements of new investments.
