The main purpose of the study is to systematically analyze the significant effects of the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the growth of economic uncertainty. The importance of forming a knowledge economy is discussed and substantiated. Particular attention is paid to the problem of significant growth of economic uncertainty. It is shown that in order to reduce economic uncertainty, complex forecasting-analytical activities should be strengthened both in the field of entrepreneurial activity at the private sector level, as well as in ensuring macroeconomic stability and the implementation of economic policies.
