A report to this effect posted on Forbes’ website says Russia’s post-crisis economy is growing at a rate of 3-4%, which is higher than in nearly all EU countries.
Russia boasts the third largest currency reserves, which should reduce the impact of possible upheavals in the future, such as a drop in oil prices, the report says.
The Russian budget was implemented with surplus from January to October 2012, with expenditure being fairly normal in relation to the GDP, Forbes writes.
And as Russia’s unemployment rate has been declining steadily in recent years, the government is able to carry out a number of liberal reforms, the business magazine says.
