Ukraine’s economy keeps on growing. In fact, it’s been growing for 12 consecutive quarters.

Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said that over the past year Ukraine received more than $53 billion from exports.

However, more should be done, Groysman said, speaking to the Cabinet of Ministers at a meeting where they approved 2018’s financial report.

“Only systematic steps can help overcome the chronic problems accumulated in the country. We have identified a plan of action. We have to move on it. This will enable people to feel changes,” Groysman said.

By Friday, the government plans to submit a financial report to the Supreme Council of Ukraine, Ukrinform reported.

Meanwhile, “The minimum wage in Ukraine amounted to UAH 10,573 ($390) in December 2018,” Groysman said.

The average salary in 2018 grew by 1.9 times, from UAH 4,686 ($173) to UAH 8,865, ($32).
