Russian economy is now recovering from 2008 2009
Russian economy is now recovering from 2008-2009 Role in the Global Economy

Quick overlook on major economic aspects:

  • Growth

    Growth was above 4.5% last two years and should be above 3.8% this year

  • Budget

    Last 12 years: mushrooming expenditures fuelled by 388% increase of oil prices between 2000 & 2008.

    By 2015, Russia might face a current account deficit

  • Employment

    Unemployment went down to 5.2% in August 2012, which is historically low.

    Increase of social expenditures had positive results.

  • Inflation & competitiveness

    Increase of social expenditures did not create inflation. In fact, it’s decreasing since 2008 and stabilised at 6.5%.

  • International trade

    During the first months of 2012, the trade surplus declined

    In 2013 & 2014, Russia will face the economic slowdown of its main economic partners.

  • Financial sector

    From June 2011 until June 2012, MinFin and CB have in fact financed 40% of the volume of credit increase.

Russia the euro crisis
RUSSIA & Role in the Global EconomyTHE EURO CRISIS

October 25 President V. Putin at the Valdai Club:

“EU is not a true Federalism and has all inconvenient without the advantages”

Russian authorities have contrarian views:

  • Support the construction of the EU (MID)

  • Criticism of the Eurozone (Kremlin)

Russia a eurasian alternative centre of economic power
Russia, a Eurasian alternative centre of economic power Role in the Global Economy

  • In its History, Russian has never been as strong as when it accepted to look East

  • Its relations with the West were an accumulation of wars, misunderstandings, humiliations

  • The true disconnection between the West and Russia is recent

  • Conversely, every time Russia based its equilibrium and strength on Asia and Eurasia, it succeeded in a much easier way

  • Recent partnerships with the East are doing well and remain promising

Recent partnerships with the east remain promising
Recent Role in the Global Economypartnerships with the East remain promising

  • New pipelines to Japan and Korea

  • New silk road

  • Arctic oil & gas reserves

  • Good relationships with Central Asia States and India

  • Diplomatic warmth with Japan

  • All frontiers issues with China now solved

By all means, Russia has to assume its Eurasian identity

Developing countries start to cooperate directly between one another

Russia can be more than a facilitator between the West and the East
