Imports in Ukraine
Ukraine - Imports (percent change)Growth likely decelerated further in the fourth quarter of last year, after slowing in the third quarter on easing private consumption. Industrial production plummeted in Q4, bruising merchandise export growth and likely taking its toll on fixed investment; however, solid construction activity and cheaper financing conditions likely cushioned the slowdown. On the upside, upbeat retail sales in Q4, amid the lowest inflation in nearly six years, suggest that household spending gathered momentum at year-end. Meanwhile, in the political arena, Parliament backed a preliminary reading of a bill on 4 February, which reduces the legislature by a third to 300 seats and eliminates single-seat constituencies, often used by tycoons to gain political leverage. The overhaul still requires approval from the Constitutional Court before two more votes in Parliament.
