The article describes the main prerequisites for the sustainable development of the Ukrainian economy, based on statistical data analysis. Firstly, the authors examine three dimensions of sustainable development (according to the TBL approach) based on official macroeconomic indicators. Secondly, the authors offer to consider three areas of the national economy as the main potential for sustainable development of the national economy. Based on it, the authors elaborate recommendations for boosting most attractive areas and harmonizing all aspects of sustainable development.
