REUTERS The Verkhovna Rada on Friday adopted in the first reading the government bill on the state budget of Ukraine for 2020, taking into account the proposals of the Budget Committee, according to an UNIAN correspondent. Introducing the document, Deputy Finance Minister Yuriy Dzhihir noted that following the finalization of the draft within the committee, revenues were increased by UAH 17.8 billion due to net profit and dividends of state enterprises, rent of state property, domestic and import VAT, as well as transfers from the National Bank worth UAH 3.5 billion, which requires the regulator&#39;s approval. He also noted that the draft resolution of the Rada provides for a number of instructions to the government, including updating the forecast of macro indicators. "After the government makes a decision on the upgrade of macro-indicators for 2020, it will be possible to calculate the updated budget indicators for 2020, and in particular, the indicators on revenues," the deputy minister said. In turn, the head of the Accounts Chamber Valeriy Patskan noted the need for adequate forecasting of macro indicators.
