Prime Minister Mykola Azarov expects GDP growth of around 3% in 2013.

"We hope to see GDP growth of around 3%. It may be higher under an optimistic scenario. If the situation on the world markets does not improve and remains unchanged, it will be a bit lower – at some 2.4-2.5%," he said.

In addition, the Prime Minister said that the government expects inflation to be moderate in 2013. According to him, the government would not allow deflation, as it did last year. "Next year we will actively credit large-scale projects, lend to the economy," Azarov said.

He said that inflation can grow a little because of that. "People should not be afraid of inflation, industrial products prices can significantly increase. I do not think there will be any significant inflationary bursts in food group, may be 1-2%," the Prime Minister said.

Azarov said that the government now agrees macroeconomic indicators for 2013 with the IMF. "We have our own vision of the development of the Ukrainian economy in the next year, the International Monetary Fund has their vision. Recently, our visions have become more or less common," Azarov summed up.
