Moscow. November 18. GDP, cleared of seasonality, in October for the second month in a row showing growth, told journalists the Minister of economic development Alexei Ulyukayev on Wednesday in Manila.
At the same time, according to him, the situation in industry in October is characterized as stagnation.
“All within is near zero. Qualitatively this stagnation, of course,” said the Minister, commenting on the situation in the industry.
However, he did not rule out that the fall in GDP for the year will be less than indicated in the official forecast (of 3.9%).
“By the end of the year the fall in GDP can be a little bit less than 3.9%, but the situation is very viscous,” said the speaker.
