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%."
The minister has also noted that capital outflow this year is expected at $15 bln.
"In 2014, capital outflow totaled $153 bln, last year it decreased three-fold to $52 bln. This year it will decrease four-fold, by the end of year it will be no more than $15 bln," he said.
According to Ulyukayev, inflation in Russia may soon go down below the Central Bank’s target of 4% by end-2017.
