Fiscal Balance in Ukraine
Ukraine - Fiscal BalanceIn the first quarter, the economy grew at the weakest pace since Q4 2017. A sharper drop in industrial production seemingly drove the deceleration, chiefly due to contracting manufacturing activity. Turning to Q2, growth appears to have recovered somewhat. Industrial production rebounded in April on a recovery in manufacturing, and mining and quarrying output. Furthermore, a jump in consumer confidence, surging retail sales and a stronger hryvnia bode well for household consumption. In the political arena, on 20 May, the newly-inaugurated President Zelensky called for snap parliamentary elections to be held in mid-July, in an attempt to capitalize on his political momentum. Following the announcement, the IMF reportedly agreed to release the next tranche of financing after the election, providing much-needed reassurance to foreign investors.
