In order to develop the economy in general and the manufacturing sector in particular, a number of reforms have been initiated and implemented in Ukraine. In addition, in the first half of 2021, the share of manufacturing in Ukraine's GDP was 11.7%, being the best indicator for the last 3 years.

The abovementioned analytical data indicate the rightness of the state orientation, however, in order to achieve results of other European countries (Germany - 18%, Switzerland - 18%, Poland - 17%) on the share of manufacturing in GDP, it is necessary to ensure sustainability and further development.
