Abstract

In the first months of 2019, Russian industry preserved output growth amid the recovery of the sales upward dynamics and around zero balance estimates of finished goods inventory. Nearly half of enterprises consider insufficient demand a major setback for significant output growth. Nevertheless, grounds for optimism remain regarding output plans and workers recruitment. The scale of investment satisfied around two thirds of industrial enterprises.
