infrastructure and human resources.
In the second group, the State budget deficit will make up about
3.7 percent of the GDP on average. At least 10 percent of public non-buisness units will be reduced compared to 2021 while at least 20 percent of units will
become financially autonomous.
In the third group, the total social investment capital will
reach about 32-34 percent of the GDP. On-balance sheet bad debts of the whole system of credit institutions will
be kept below 3 percent, towards gradually developing a professional debt
market. All banks must meet Basel II standards.
In the fourth group, the total capitalisation of stock market

and corporate bond markets will account for at least 47 percent and nearly 20
percent of the GDP, respectively. The expenditure on science and technology

technological innovation will rise by 15 percent annually on average.
There will be about 1.5 million enterprises, 60,000 – 70,000 of
which will be on medium and large-scale in the fifth target group. The private sector’s
contribution to the GDP will be around 55 percent while at least 5-10 national
products will build their own international trademarks.
In the sixth group, the digital economy will account for 20
percent of the GDP. The ratio of digital economy in each sector will reach at
least 10 percent.

35 percent of farming cooperatives will partner with firms in value chains.
