Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman wrote this on his Facebook page.
“Good news. According to the State Statistics, the average salary of a full-time employee in Ukraine amounted to UAH 6,752 in March 2017. This is twice the amount of minimum wage and by 8.7% higher the figures of February. Such growth fully corresponds to the growth of industrial production, which grew by more than 8% in March,” Groysman wrote.
He also noted that incomes of Ukrainians grew by more than 37% over the year.
“Taking into the account that the inflation rate over this period totaled about 15%, we can state that wage growth finally outstrips the price hike. And this is what we are striving for: we convert the indicators of economic growth into the welfare for every Ukrainian,” Groysman added.
