Moscow, Sha’ban 4, 1438, Apr 30, 2017, SPA — Russia expects economic growth of about 2 per cent for
2017, a reversal after years of recession, according to Industry and
Trade Minister Denis Manturov in statements published in German weekly newspaper Welt am Sonntag, which was quoted by dpa.
He said almost all sectors saw rapid growth in 2016 and the first quarter of 2017. That’s an improvement over earlier estimates, which only foresaw slight growth for this year.
