The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) forecasts that remittances from migrant workers to Ukraine will amount to $13 billion in 2021, which is 8% more than in 2020, Deputy NBU Governor Yuriy Heletiy has said.

"In 2021, remittances from migrant workers are expected to grow by 8% to about $13 billion," Heletiy said at a briefing on March 4, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

He also added that the Ukrainian tourism industry is expected to resume this year.
