RUSSIAN MACROECONOMIC POLICY IN RESPONSE TO A VOLATILE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT

10:15-11:30 Congress Centre, Conference Hall D1
A package of economic policy measures implemented in 2014–2015 has allowed the economy to absorb external shocks and stabilized fluctuations in key financial indicators and financial markets. What further actions must be taken in the three key areas of economic policy (budgetary, monetary and structural) to ensure a transition to sustainable economic growth? How will policies in these areas affect each other? What must be done to ensure that the changes are successfully implemented?
