NBU estimates Ukraine's GDP growth in Q4 2018 at 3.3%


The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) says the growth of Ukraine's real GDP in annual terms accelerated to 3.3% in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2018.

"Agriculture was one of the key drivers of real GDP growth, thanks to a record-high yield of grain and oilseeds," the NBU's January 2019 Inflation Report said. The regulator also estimated economic growth in Ukraine in 2018 at 3.3%, the highest growth rate in seven years.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the State Statistics Service of Ukraine estimated the country's real GDP growth in Q3 2018 at 2.8% in annual terms, in Q2 2018 at 3.8%, and in Q1 2018 at 3.1%. The service has not released its report for the fourth quarter of 2018, as well as for the entire year 2018.
