Investors demonstrate confidence in the real sector


The Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat) published the data on foreign investments into the Russian economy. According to the results for the first nine months of the current year, there is an investment boom in Russia – during this period the investment inflow amounted to USD 132.4 bln. It exceeds the last year amount by almost 16 %. It should be specifically noted that direct investments comprise 14 % of the total volume (this index also increased compared to 2012 data; the increase reached 3.4 %). This shows that foreign investors are ready to invest not only in securities, but in the real sector of the domestic economy as well. In monetary terms, based on the results of the nine months, foreign investors invested more than USD 18.5 bln into the Russian economy. And remember that we are talking about direct investments here.
