PESTLE Insights: Macroeconomic Outlook Report - Russia
Macroeconomic Outlook Report of Russia identifies the potentials of Russia as an investment destination by analyzing the political, economic, social, technological, legal and environmental (PESTLE) structure.
Central Federal District (Moscow, Kaluga, Lipetsk) and North West Federal District (St. Petersburg, Leningrad, Vologda) were the most preferred destinations for the investors accounting for more than 70% of the total investments received in the first three quarters of 2016. Wholesale & retail, mining & quarrying, basic metals and food attracted the most foreign investments during the period.
Sliding of oil prices and the sanctions imposed on Russia by the western economies from end of 2014 onwards drove the economy into recession. Rise in household consumption expenditure narrowed the contraction in GDP to -0.2% in 2016 from -2.8% in 2015. The economy is expected to post positive growth in 2017 on the expected marginal recovery in the oil prices.
Russian Federation performed better in environmental and technology and infrastructure parameter, while macroeconomic, political, legal, and demographic risks are higher in comparison to other emerging economies of Europe, Asia and African regions in GlobalData Country Risk Index 2017.
