AEIR 2019/2020

Growth in several sectors slowed in 2018, while increased government spending resulted in a sustained 4.1% GDP expansion. With growth in both manufacturing and mining slowing, industrial growth fell to 4.2% from 7.7% in 2017. However, state support for housing, services and agriculture expanded further in 2018, supporting growth. Economic growth is forecast to decline to 3.5% in 2019 and 3.3% in 2020, mainly reflecting lower oil prices and slower GDP growth in both the People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation. State non-oil investment may become a key driver of growth in the coming years.
