The initial estimates of August by industrial enterprises received by means of business surveys carried out by the Gaidar Institute showed improvement of the situation in industry. Actual changes in demand retained the previous dynamics; as a result, the achieved volumes of sales were rated highly by producers and permitted them to retain output growth. Estimates of stocks of finished products may underpin growth in production forecasted by enterprises. The only disadvantage of August was growth in interest rates offered by banks, however, it did not affect enterprises’ estimate of availability of loans.
