In 2017, the share of dissatisfied people amounted to 80 percent. Only four percent of respondents said that the state of the economy was good (three percent in 2017). Another 17 percent evaluated the current situation as stable (16 percent in 2017). 53 percent of respondents expect positive changes in the economy to come (60 percent in 2017). Deterioration is expected by 40 percent of entrepreneurs (36 percent). 63 percent of respondents stated that their business situations had deteriorated (59 percent). At the same time, only 12 percent of respondents said that their situations had improved (15 percent).

The uncertainty of the economic situation, low domestic demand and high taxes were named by the businessmen among the most important obstacles for economic growth. The majority of respondents - 70 percent (64 percent in 2017) – think that the authorities’ measures to restart economic growth are ineffective. These actions are estimated in a positive way only by a quarter of respondents (32 percent in 2017).
