Progress in the peace negotiations with Russia and the reform agenda of the new government sent strong positive signals to investors. If the reforms are implemented the economy will receive a significant boost, though it will likely only be felt in the medium run. During 2019-2021, GDP growth will remain rather moderate at around 3% per annum. The major negative risk to the forecast is inability of the government to shake off the influence of oligarchs.
