The international monetary Fund worsened the forecast of growth of gross domestic product of Ukraine in 2017 from 2.9% to 2%.
It is reported by Interfax.
The forecast has deteriorated since the blockade of uncontrolled territories and the loss of control over the co-located enterprises.
However, in 2018 the forecast has improved from 3% to 3.1%.
In addition, the negative consequence will be the expansion of the current account deficit of the balance of payments in the current year from 3% of GDP to 3.7% of GDP, and 2.6% of GDP to 3% of GDP.
Also, the IMF confirmed its forecast of inflation at 10% in 2017 and 7% in 2018.
