Unemployment in Ukraine
Ukraine - UnemploymentUpbeat end-of-year economic data is rolling in as the election season nears full swing. Growth accelerated in Q4 amid buoyant domestic demand. Private consumption seemed to have been bolstered by tightening labor market conditions and a strong hryvnia, as demonstrated by healthy retail sales growth in Q4. On top of that, exports continued to expand, albeit modestly, against the backdrop of feeble external demand conditions. Available Q1 data, however, paints a mixed picture: While industrial production tumbled in January, soaring retail sales reflect upbeat consumer demand. Looking ahead, voters will elect their next president on 31 March. Comedian Volodymyr Zelensky has emerged as the frontrunner in opinion polls, followed by incumbent President Petro Poroshenko and opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko. The battle for president thus remains crowded, with a second-round vote highly likely.
