Putin Sees Russia Investment Boom, Equity Analysts Don’t

(Bloomberg) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin is counting on an investment boom to propel GDP growth above 3 percent by 2021, yet equity analysts haven’t penciled in much expansion in capital spending at Russia’s biggest companies. In Bloomberg Economics’ view, neither picture is accurate: BE expects investment to pick up, while still falling short of the government’s ambitions. Putin delivers his annual state-of-the-nation address on Wednesday.
