In turn, Ukrainian Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture Tymofiy Mylovanov says the ministry and the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) expect an increase in Ukraine&#39;s gross domestic product (GDP) from 3.5% to 3.7%. "We will submit our forecast to the Cabinet of Ministers soon, and it will be published after the Cabinet approves it. The National Bank is also drafting its outlook, which is constantly updated. According to these forecasts, Ukraine&#39;s indicator for 2020 will be within 3.5%-3.7%," he said. Mylovanov added the updated macroeconomic forecast for 2020 assumes that Ukraine&#39;s GDP growth may reach 3.7% (the base-case scenario) or 4.8% (the best-case scenario). According to him, the difference between the scenarios is determined by the level of investment in the country.
