The National Bank of Ukraine has estimated the gross domestic product growth in 2018 at 3.3%. The central bank has said this in a statement, Ukrainian News Agency reports. According to the report, the sustainable growth in consumer demand thanks to considerable population's real income increment rates supported the growth in sectors, in particular: retail, passenger transport and services. Besides, agriculture was one of the major drivers of the GDP growth thanks to high yield of grain and oil-bearing crops. Increasing foreign trade deficit and the dividend payments boost triggered the growth in the deficit of the current account in 2018 to 3.6% of the GDP. As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, in December 2018, the NBU expected the GDP growth of 3.4% in 2018.
