2018 CIS Outlook

2018 CIS Outlook


Risk factors have abated in the CIS region as energy prices rise, political stability has been maintained throughout the economic crisis, and growth drivers improve across the board.

Russia’s continued growth in 2018 is likewise critical to these regional economies as export demand picks up and remittance flows recover more strongly.

More stability and growth, albeit muted, will increase the region’s investment attractiveness while allowing for greater predictability in strategic planning compared to earlier years.

Businesses should refresh their customer segmentation strategies and set in place long-term plans for the region as the recovery takes hold.
