The Russian Investment Forum 2018 Summary

Forum programme public discussions summary*

The Russian economy has stabilized, it has become less dependent on external shocks and raw material prices, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev stated at the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi (RIF-2018). The financial system is stable, the GDP has shown positive dynamics, inflation rate is low and does not exceed standard scope, the pricing policy is transparent and predictable, the budget is balanced, and we even started accumulation of funds in the sovereign welfare fund. Now our primary goal is to enable development of the economy. This is where state centre and all Federal regions should act together. Discussions at the Forum have covered three major components of this effort: stimulating business development, improving the quality of life and management enhancement.
