Country Economic Forecasts - Ukraine

​GDP growth of 1.5% in 2016 confirms the economy's turnaround, as fixed investment and private consumption bounced back despite the breakdown of trade with Russia and the ongoing separatist conflict in the east. Growth is set to reach 2.5% this year as renewed IMF support enables the fiscal deficit to stay around 3% of GDP, with public investment stepped up as subsidies are withdrawn. Medium-term growth will be capped at around 3% by infrastructure weakness and internal displacement, but will be underpinned by new trade opportunities and multilateral investment support. The return to export growth in 2016 was weakened by rising implementation risk around the EU trade pact and recession and sanctions blocking traditional Russian markets. Risks to the recovery remain high, with the new US administration signalling a re-set of relations with Russia that could erode its commitment to Ukraine's reconstruction and recovery of lost territory, and the risk of EU also easing sanctions on Russia, threatening further conflict escalation. Unresolved conflict in breakaway regions is an obstacle to east-west trade revival, and foreign debt repayment from 2019 is at risk from weak GDP growth.
