Investment climate stagnates
Sociological reports demonstrate that foreign companies still view Ukraine’s investment climate as mostly negative. Specifically, a survey conducted by Research & Branding Group on the latest initiative of State Tax Service of Ukraine shows that the investment activity index in April was only 4.23 out of 10.
Key factors in the study were: investment climate evaluation, climate changes in the last 6 months, expected changes, accordance of Ukrainian economic policy with world reality and companies’ investment plans. According to the report, 4.5 percent of investors view the investment climate as good, 8.3 percent see it as very bad, 35.5 percent consider it close to very bad and 50 percent think it neutral.
