Stabilisation and renewed growth

key challenges

The Russian Federation enjoyed a decade of strong growth between the 1998 financial crisis and the intensification of the global economic crisis in September 2008, but has since been gripped by a severe recession. The main near-term challenge for policy-makers is to manage the consequences of the economic downturn and limit its severity and duration. Looking beyond the crisis, the overarching challenge is to put in place a sounder growth model, one driven by innovation, investment, and the accumulation of human capital. This will ultimately require reforms in many areas, but this chapter focuses on a limited number of key challenges: 1) further strengthening the macroeconomic policy framework; 2) improving the functioning of the financial system; and 3) raising the levels of competition throughout the economy via streamlined state involvement and lower barriers to entry.
