The Budget Declaration for 2022-2024, approved by the Cabinet early this week, lays down the growth of gross domestic product in Ukraine of at least 5% annually starting 2023.

"Macroeconomic stability will be ensured, and the dollar rate is expected to stay the range of UAH 28-29. Thanks to the implemented reforms, as early as 2023 we will be able to reach a steady trend of economic growth, in fact, of 5% annually," Shmyhal wrote on Telegram.

"The budget deficit will be reduced by almost half, returning to the 3% target already from 2023. The public debt is set to be reduced to below 50% of GDP. This means we will spend less on servicing debts and more – on health care, defense, and education," the prime minister added.
