Razumkov Centre conducted research about the state budget deficit in Ukraine and compared Ukrainian situation with the examples from the world practise. The research laid basis to the recently issued analytical report Taking on Debts and Giving Debts Back. Global Trends and Ukrainian Challenges.

 

Ukraine for a long time has been using extensive international debts which were not managed properly. As an outcome, Ukraine is nowadays considered to be a heavy debtor and is threatened by default. Because of this, prevention of Ukraine`s state default and restructuring of Ukraine`s external debt are one of the crucial current tasks of the government.

The analytical report envisages the diverse aspects related to the topic of state debt, such as state and external debts, debt policy, minimization of the current debt crisis and its influence on the economic development of Ukraine.

The analytical report includes data from Ukraine as well as from other developed and developing countries.

  • Chapter one focuses on the main macroeconomic factors and their relations which determine size and structure of a state debt.
