EBRD remained unchanged prognosis for Ukraine's GDP growth
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development left unchanged its forecast for Ukrainian GDP growth at 3% in 2018.
It was reported on the bank's web site.
The EBRD expects Ukrainian economy will grow by 3% in 2018 and 2019.
The bank noted that large foreign exchange debt repayments by the public sector falling due in 2018-20 and the forthcoming elections in 2019 represent important risks to the economic growth in Ukraine.
The bank also paid attention to uncertainity of continuation of the IMF (the International Monetary Fund) programme due to the lacking commitment on the part of the authorities to meet reform requirements.
In general, the EBRD said the growth of Ukrainian economy would slow despite of growth forecasts for 2018.
