Ukraine – Country with a Complex Economy

Ukraine gained its independence in 1991 after collapse of Soviet Union and has been long known as “Breadbasket of Europe” because of its fertile black soil.

Agricultural sector contributes about 10% of the GDP and employs 15% of the working population. Ukraine is major grain exporter (wheat, corn, barley etc.). In 2018-19, Ukraine exported a record 50 million tons of grain and 2019-20 season that began last July, export has been up 21% y-o-y.

The Ukrainian industrial sector employs about 25% of the population and accounts for 24% of the GDP. The sector is dominated by heavy industries such as iron and steel, but followed by coal mining chemicals, mechanical products and shipbuilding.

The service sector contributes 50% of the GDP with 60% employment of working population.

Ukraine has been well known for its energy transit, historically it has been transporting through its territory Russian and Caspian oil and gas to Western Europe. However, Ukraine’s role as the main transit corridor has diminished, with Russia seeking alternative routes.

Ukraine is a very open economy, with a share of foreign trade in the country’s GDP of 99% in 2018 (World Bank).

Ukraine’s main trading partner is EU – 42.6% by destination and 40.4% by origin (WTO).

Inflation has eased to 2.4% in February 2020 and real wages increased by 10% in 2019.

In previous years there has been a large wave of migration of workers from Ukraine to Poland. It is estimated that about 2 million Ukrainian migrants have arrived in Poland since 2014.

Now unemployment rate in Ukraine has fallen under 9% and Ukrainian firms have been seeking for workers.

Due to the current uncertain times of world economy and COVID-19 impact, International Monetary Fund is expecting Ukraine’s economy to subtract by 7.7% in 2020, but to turn back to growth of 3.6% in 2021.

Doing Business in Ukraine

Ukraine enjoys opportune geographic location in Europe between east and west. It is rich in natural resources and known for its fertile soil.

Ukraine is the 50th largest export economy in the world and the 39th most complex economy according to the Economic Complexity Index (ECI).

The information technology services industry is among the fastest growing areas of Ukraine’s economy, with entrepreneurs taking advantage of the large number of the country’s workers who are highly educated in technical fields.
