According to the survey, an average entrepreneur in Ukraine devotes 47 hours a week to doing business and believes the result is worth the effort.

According to entrepreneurs polled, there are a number of obstacles to the rapid and high-quality development of entrepreneurial activity in Ukraine, among which the most significant are: high tax burden and complexity of tax administration (63%), constant changes to the "rules of the game" (63%), as well as the lack of available loans and other sources of quick working capital (61%).

Despite the complicated business environment, Ukrainian entrepreneurs see the country's future in five years in a positive key: an economically developed, successful, and self-sufficient country with a western course of development (accession to the EU), without war, with an integral territory and rule of law.
