Peskov called macroeconomic stability in Russia undeniable

MOSCOW, 12 Mar – RIA Novosti. Macroeconomic stability in Russia is not disputed by anyone and receives the highest rating from world financiers, said the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, answering a question from journalists about the role of the Bank of Russia in increasing investment activity in the country and whether the regulator should pursue a more stimulating policy. ” The Central Bank is a mega-regulator, and you know that macrostability in Russia is a fact that is absolutely indisputable and is not disputed by anyone in the world, on the contrary, macrostability is the factor that actually receives the highest rating among world financiers, “said Peskov …

The day before, at a meeting on measures to increase investment activity, President Vladimir Putin noted that in 2020, for the first time in the history of crises, Russia did not tighten, but softened its macroeconomic policy – the Central Bank rate was reduced to a historical minimum, and the fiscal stimulus was about 4.5% of GDP.

In February, the head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina told RIA Novosti that the Bank of Russia does not exclude an increase in the key rate already this year, if the economy has time to fully recover, while at the same time it sees no opportunity for further easing of policy.
