The Shift of Real Interest Rates in Economy to Be Ambiguous
In the first quarter the Bank of Russia will assess the impact of the first steps of the new Trump administration on the FOREX market and the ability of the signatories to the agreement to limit oil production to perform their obligations. After that, the Bank of Russia is likely to reduce the key interest rate three times in a row (in Q2, Q3 and Q4) each time by 0.5%, so that by the end of the year it reaches 8.5% while the rate of inflation is expected to be 4% per year by then. In these conditions the shift of real interest rates in the economy is going to be ambiguous. In interview with a “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” correspondent, Analytical Center expert Daniil Nametkin commented on the statements recently made by Bank of Russia chair Elvira Nabiullina regarding the key interest rate.

Stock and currency exchange players are holding their breath for the night from 14th to 15th December: that is when the US Federal Reserve will announce its final decision regarding the benchmark interest rate. The rising prices for energy resources and the willingness of the state to facilitate an influx of investments are also playing a significant role in the investors’ decision making process, experts believe.

Russia Is for the First Time Ready to Participate in Stabilizing the Global Oil Market
10th December saw the end of a meeting in Vienna of OPEC ministers with oil exporters that are not part of the cartel. As a result, an agreement was concluded to reduce oil production, with 11 countries, including Russia, signing it. Now Russia has to cut down its oil production by 300,000 barrels of oil per day. Is this going to help maintain balance in the global oil production and how is it going to affect the Russian economy? The chief advisor to the Head of the Analytical Center Leonid Grigoiev commented on the OPEC’s role in setting the global oil prices at a round table titled “Oil: Oil Price Projections and Prospects of the Oil and Natural Gas Market.”

Said agreement was reached at the ministers’ meeting in Vienna following many months of under-the-carpet dealing and many hours of finalizing negotiations.

Fuel and Energy Companies Need More State Support
In July, 2016 the Analytical Center conducted a large survey of representatives of industrial companies to find out what problems were being faced by fuel and energy companies and by related business in the area of import substitution. The survey’s participants included employees of 38 fuel and energy companies with production facilities in 42 regions of the country. "The survey found that fuel and energy companies were actively implementing import substitution programs and that by and large they were in agreement with the state’s priorities with regards to the development of domestic industry. At the same time, the survey also identified several groups of problems holding back effective implementation of import substitution plans in the fuel and energy sector," Analytical Center Expert Daria Nester told a Standard Magazine correspondent, talking about the findings of the survey.

The question is: will all parties be able to honor their commitments,” Alexander Martynyuk, expert with the Analytical Center, said in his interview to the REGNUM news agency.
