Growth of the Russian economy in 2018 may reach 2.7%, it will begin to accumulate in 2018, which will increase the incomes of the population by 25% by 2024, Head of the Center for Strategic Research (CSR) and former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin said in an interview with TASS.

These are ambitious tasks," Kudrin said.
He added that Russia's strategic development program for 2018-2024, which is currently being prepared by the CSR, had the average economic growth at 3-3.5% from 2018 to 2024.
On April 13, the Russian Government reviewed three scenarios of the socio-economic development of Russia for 2018-2020 - conservative, basic, target - and adopted the so-called base scenario as a base. According to the scenario GDP growth in 2017 will reach 2%, and then for 3 years will stabilize by 1.5%. At the same time, the Russian authorities promised to work on developing measures to achieve the target scenario, which optimistically predicts acceleration of economic growth to a rate higher than the world average - 3.1% in 2020.
