World Bank representatives put forward their forecasts on the development of the economy in Russia in 2015
The World Bank warns that zero GDP growth can be expected next year. We would like to remind that before that the forecast was a growth of 0,3%. The main threat is still seen in the unstable position of "black gold" on the market. Thus, analysts predict a drop in oil prices to $ 85 per barrel. In September, this figure was $ 99,5 per barrel.
Forecasts were also put forward by the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Finance. So, in the Ministry of Economic Development, the economy is expected to fall to 0,8%. They suggest that the dollar may reach 49 rubles.
The estimates of the Ministry of Finance vary, where they believe that a drop in GDP growth to 0,8% is possible under an optimistic scenario, which provides for a decrease in oil prices to 80 dollars per barrel.
