Inflation in Ukraine in 2017 has an upward trend. Experts predict the order of 8%. With regard to the dollar – the assumption is not very comforting. All these things and more were discussed at the general meeting of the EBA Ukraine’s Business Climate-Global Outlook, which took place on January 26, 2017.

In 2017 on the world market the dollar starts to strengthen its position. But it is badly reflected on hryvnia rate, which, of course, will begin to fall again “- said in an exclusive commentary for Lawyers Daily Tomas Fiala, CEO of Dragon Capital company.

According to him, in 2017 the average annual hryvnia exchange rate will amount to 27,5-28,5 UAH / USD, and the National Bank, in turn, will not allow the national currency to rise above the level of 27. Thus, the NBU will keep the current account deficit within 3% GDP.
