The statistics on foreign direct investments (FDI) in Q1 and Q2 2017 published by the Central Bank of Russia shows that growth in incoming FDI in Russia started in 2016 is keeping up. This trend is related to Russia’s renewed GDP growth, higher global prices of energy commodities and reduced macroeconomic and country risks of the Russian economy. However, fundamental problems which create barriers for the FDI influx still remain unsolved.
