The Russia Economic Outlook Russia's gross domestic product grew by 1.5% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2018, and the IMF is projecting a steady 1.8% expansion for 2019. With this solid recovery underway, what economic restructuring and investment development policies are needed to unlock further accelerated growth? What is the prognosis for energy exports and how might price fluctuations impact overall economic performance? How have import substitution policies affected the outlook and what further steps are needed to revitalise industrial productivity? And finally how has Russia's recent focus on cultivating buoyant markets in Asia and the Middle East fared and what more should be done to mitigate the dampening effect of Western sanctions?
