MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Recovery of international business environment and oil prices may slow down if the US Federal Reserve raises the rate, the Bank of Russia said on Friday in the Financial Stability Review.
"Improvement of international business climate was observed in the reporting period (2-3 quarters of 2016 - TASS): capital inflow to financial assets of developing markets; certain recovery of resource prices occurred against the background of maintained soft monetary policy of leading central banks.
