He said that Ukraine was one of 18 States that from 1990 to 2017 years, there has been a decline in the economy. Every year the index fell on average by 0.2 %.

According to him, investment in the specified time period accounted for only 20 % of the gross domestic product, from 2010 to 2017 and is 16 %, despite the fact that the average level should be 26 % of GDP.
