Capital Investment In Russia In H1 2013


  • Olga Izryadnova

    (Gaidar Institute for Economic Policy)


Capital investments stood at 99.3% in real terms in january–july 2013 against the previous year. The structure of sources of investment financing kept showing an uptrend in the share of equity funds and federal budget funds. In H1 2013, general level of investment activity was adversely affected by a decline of 7.9% in investments in the mineral extraction sector, 9.1% in the production and distribution of electric power, gas and water, and 15.9% in the transport industry against H1 2012. In contrast, capital investments in the manufacturing industry increased insignificantly but were used ineffectively, thereby keeping the production output growth rate slowing down. Annual growth rate in capital investments is expected to grow by 2.5% in 2013 against 6.6% â 2012, as estimated by the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation.
