KIEV, January 17, 20:20 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine managed to avoid shrinkage of the GDP in 2013, the government press service said in a report Friday quoting Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov.
“I got the preliminary results on the GDP for 2013 and we have 100% there compared with the previous year /2012 - Itar-Tass/,” he said. “This means we managed to keep up its size in spite of the global economic crisis and a whole chain of problems in relations with partners, and that’s very important.”
Azarov said encouraging tendencies had shown up in the Ukrainian economy in the previous few months and the country was faced with a task of “making them stand firm”.
