In his opinion, problems in economy certainly are. And at people financial means don't suffice.
"There will be no family in Nikolaev or area which wouldn't endure every day these or those crises. It is necessary to bring together children in school, to win back a wedding, etc. - families feel deficiency of funds for the solution of other current questions. But after all nobody shouts that crisis", - was told by the governor. And in confirmation of the words I announced some results received in the first quarter 2009.

In agro-industrial complex in March in comparison with February cattle and bird realization grew by 10%, and as the governor emphasized, not due to livestock cutting. On the contrary, the livestock of KRS grew by 4%, pigs - for 9%, birds - for 4%.
Production of milk in March grew by 4% (in any degree it can be explained with seasonality of production).
In March by a motor and water transport it was transported freights 9,9% more, goods turnover grew by 17%, пассажироперевозки - for 4%. The volume of construction works grew by 47% in March, thus, that at the end of last year and the beginning of it in construction recession though in comparison with last year this gain yet didn't block lag was observed, the governor noted.
Foreign economic activity is characterized by quite positive dynamics - the increase in export at 12,6% in January - March of this year in comparison with the similar period of last year (export made 175 million dollars) is accurately traced.
Import decreased by 22%, and it, A.Garkusha considers, too the positive indicator - means, the market starts passing to use of own production, own reserves. Respectively, the positive balance grew more than twice that is an essential indicator.
Financial result for January - February as a whole on area positive, last year's indicators exceeding in 2,5 time.
The number of the profitable enterprises increased by 47%, and the number of the unprofitable enterprises decreased by 20% that too speaks about more optimistical data.

In my opinion, dynamics positive, also it would be desirable that this dynamics proceeded. Though problems suffice. But in my opinion, there are a lot of those who isn't able and doesn't want to work, are covered with the term "crisis", - A.Garkusha told.
