Throughout 2013, the World Economic Forum (WEF) consulted with more than 300 representatives of business, politics and civil society, inside and outside Ukraine, to examine the long-term economic and social issues confronting Ukrainians and to outline some possible scenarios. In light of the area’s current turmoil, this report’s prescriptions may seem far removed from the nation’s immediate struggle to retain its territory and sovereignty. But today’s economic, political and social problems are likely to remain when this crisis is over, whatever its outcome. getAbstract recommends this clear overview of the major challenges and choices Ukraine faces.
In this summary, you will learn
- How Ukraine can build a robust economy,
- How weak and venal elites could doom growth, and
- Why the country can’t achieve a stable future without making a new “social contract” with all stakeholders.
