DAVOS, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich has forecast the growth of shale gas prices and a softening of policy of the European Central Bank.
“It is unobvious that relatively low prices on energy carriers affected by the development of shale gas and oil will remain low for a long time,” he said. “They may go up again.”
The growth of the European economy was equal to 0.4%, Dvorkovich said, adding that “this is not the growth, that’s nothing.”
