MOSCOW, October 26. /TASS/. The base plus forecast by the Economic Development Ministry’s envisages GDP growth of 1.1% in 2017, Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukayev said on Wednesday.
Speaking at the Federation Council, the upper chamber of parliament, he said:
"We may expect the recovery of the gross domestic product in 2017 by 1.1%, in 2018 by 1.1% and in 2019 by 2.4%."
