Investment plans of industrial enterprises in April were at the maximum since 2012, showed the Gaidar Institute index.
Analyst from “Markets Money Power” Sergey Ramaninov believes that growth of investments is primarily explained by the fact that many enterprises want to maximize purchases of equipment, bringing the enterprise to a normal form. Since parallel imports still continue, and no one understands what will happen next year.
The second important factor is that the current time obliges to invest in the country, not withdrawing profits, the expert emphasizes.
“From an economic point of view, this is certainly a big plus, while as result, it will affect GDP, – Sergey Ramaninov notes. – Just the fact itself that companies are putting money into circulation is already a positive factor for the Russian economy that confirms its viability even with this amount of sanctions.”
