As reported by Censor.NET citing the governmental portal, this was announced by Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroisman on the meeting with regional media on Friday.
"Average salary across the country will reach 7,000 hryvnia, minimum wages - 3,200 hryvnia. Next year, the minimum wages will go up. We will do everything possible so that the economic growth leads to higher profits," Hroisman said.
He stressed that the key factor for the increase will be creation of new jobs through implementation of large-scale infrastructure projects, support for manufacturing, and increasing capacity of the regions. The prime minister said support programs had been implemented in agriculture sector, pharmacy, engineering, and soon a draft bill will be introduced to modernize enterprises.
