Subsequently, there was no understanding where the country was heading, what the priorities were. We decided to change the approach and shift to middle term budget planning.The budget will be planned for at least three years - 2018, 2019, and 2020," the prime minister said.

Hroysman says the government will forecast sustainable economy growth. Key priorities will include jobs increase, solving infrastructure problems, and higher living standards of citizens.

The prime minister says the average salary might reach 7,000 hryvnia ($271 monthly) this year.
