    Development Institute: VEB will bring 1% of Russian GDP

    Financial organization will deal with the examination of state projects

    The contribution to the country's GDP from projects that are financed with the participation of the state corporation VEB.RF should potentially be up to 1% annually. This was stated by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at a meeting of the supervisory board of a financial organization. By 2024, VEB in total will receive in the form of subsidies for the repayment of foreign debt about 600 billion rubles. The annex to the draft federal budget for 2019 and for the planned period of 2020 and 2021 takes into account that the amount of support for VEB from the budget to repay foreign debt for 2019 is planned at 100 billion rubles, for 2020 - 50 billion rubles, for 2021 year - also 50 billion rubles.


    VEB.RF will receive additional funds to reimburse part of the costs of servicing foreign loans. To increase the efficiency of the state development institute, it is necessary to strengthen its financial model. This is a long-term settlement of foreign debt. The approach of recapitalization of VEB.RF for 300 billion rubles through the new mechanism of the so-called approved capital has already been worked out. This is part of the share capital that can be provided when the need arises for investment resources.

    - As a New Year's gift, I signed a decree that defines the formed and approved capital of a state corporation. This is a new mechanism for capitalization of development institutions, - said Dmitry Medvedev.

    Earlier, the Ministry of Finance prepared amendments to the Federal Law “On the Bank of Development” and the Budget Code. Bills secured a new function of VEB. Its essence is in the coordination and organization of activities of all development institutions on the issues of ensuring the long-term socio-economic development of Russia. The state corporation will act as curator of state development institutions and ensure their informational interaction with the authorities.

    - The task of VEB in this sense, of course, is not just to distribute money, but to reduce risks. And when considering projects, they will be evaluated not only by a state corporation, but also by banks. And the contribution to the gross domestic product of projects that are financed with the participation of VEB should potentially be up to 1% annually , the chairman of the government noted. - Examination of projects conducted by VEB should reach a new level. This approach, I hope, will allow a state corporation to more actively influence the growth of the real sector of the economy.


    During the meeting, the Supervisory Board also discussed the implementation of investment projects with the participation of the state corporation, in particular, the financing of oil tankers of the new generation of Aframax size. In September, Rosneft, SSK Zvezda, Arctic Leasing LLC (part of VEB-Leasing group) and SKF Eco LLC (part of Sovcomflot group) concluded a number of contracts for the construction of two new generation oil tankers using LNG as fuel, with their subsequent long-term chartering. Thus, Russia will be able to compete with leading shipbuilding countries, to take a leading role in the formation of promising international transport corridors.

    - Last week I held a meeting on Sabetta - on the development of energy projects, projects in the field of liquefied natural gas and, of course, the development of regions. It was about whether there is enough capacity for the transportation of raw materials, the volume of which increases with the implementation of investment projects, - said Dmitry Medvedev. - It is important for us to synchronize the actions of all the participants, including the builders of the icebreaking and tanker fleets. So that later it didn’t happen that the raw materials are there, and there are no tankers for transportation (or we frantically run around the market and try to look for something abroad). You need to build ships today.

    VEB plans to provide funds for the construction of a new generation of shuttle tanker with the best ice and maneuverability characteristics. The planned volume of participation of the corporation will be 18.5 billion rubles.

    [quote="Austin"]Very good interview with JEff Gundlach ...............Must watch ]/quote]

    thanks Austin, Im not an economic expert but what I see in case of Russia GDP growth is not their fetish, Al least yet. Social stability is. And it looks it is going to be for a long time.
    Interest rates are only part of growth/stability equatio otherwise Venezuela would have high groth and low inflation. No liberals in Venezuelan CB isnt it?


    Nabiulina perhaps has liberal mindset but she is there to do the job Putin wanted. Do you think would she stay CBR boss once changed course against vision of by Putin & co?
    Putin besides all good (really good wishing patriotic dudes) has to see higher - there are another dimensions in politics we even dont know about, other factors in intl relations.
    Blackmails, info wars, spec ops whatever you want all influences economy. Social unrest like in France is the last thing Russia wants preparing to eventual hot war.

    This is good move to introduce transprancy in National project 

    [size=32]Dmitry Medvedev spoke about the implementation of national projects[/size]


    https://rg.ru/2018/12/24/dmitrij-medvedev-rasskazal-o-realizacii-nacproektov.html






    Control over national projects will be hourly, and even every minute. If the interim results are supposed to be summed up twice a year, then operational control, Dmitry Medvedev said, is being organized online. The government will add 91 indicators of national projects to the federal statistical work plan. Thus, they will become objects of statistical accounting and will be open to all. “So, the society itself will be able to control how national projects are carried out. In the near future I will sign such an order of the government,” the Prime Minister said.
    “Our task is to ensure that next year citizens will feel real changes for the better in all twelve national projects,” he concluded

    In Russia, may increase the speed limits on some roads



    In two new sections of the M-4 Don, and in some sections of the M-11, Moscow-Petersburg will increase the allowed speed to 130 km / h.
    On some federal roads in the Russian Federation may increase the allowed speed from 90 to 110 km / h, the newspaper "Izvestia" writes with reference to Rosavtodor.

    According to the publication, this proposal will help to improve the capacity of roads, as well as reduce accidents. It is supposed to increase the speed limit, first of all, on the section of the tracks in the Pskov region and in the Perm region. We are talking about 419–616 km of the M-9 Baltiya highway, 178– 542 km of the R-23 road, 105 –141 km of the R-56 road, and 4 - 59 km of the A-road 212.

    In addition, it is possible to increase the allowed speed on the new sections of the toll roads M-4 "Don" and M-11 "Moscow - St. Petersburg". According to the publication, currently the changes are coordinated with the territorial divisions of the traffic police.

    The plans of Rosavtodor are to “disperse” up to 110 km / h the sections M-8, R-217, M-5, A-370, increase the carrying capacity of the R-22 Kaspiy, A-289 Krasnodar – Kerch, R-404 roads. Tyumen – Khanty-Mansiysk.

    Earlier it was reported that in Russia, speed limit signs will be installed, which will automatically calculate the optimal speed mode for current weather conditions, the so-called dynamic signs . They will be placed on highways and along high-speed roads.

    At a meeting with the First Deputy Prime Minister - Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, Russian business presented new investment projects worth 15.3 trillion rubles. This was told by the press secretary of the head of department Andrei Lavrov, reports "Prime."
    [size]
    According to him, of this amount, the investors' own funds amount to at least 3 trillion rubles.
    The meeting discussed specific mechanisms and actions that are needed to increase and expand the investment programs of companies, Lavrov said. “Ultimately, this work will contribute to the task of attracting private investment in the implementation of national projects on ecology, the development of exports, the digital economy, health care, transport infrastructure, as well as increased labor productivity,” he added.
    [/size]
    At the end of November, a representative of the Ministry of Finance said that in three weeks the department received investment applications from 54 entrepreneurs for the implementation of 207 projects with an investment of more than 14.5 trillion rubles.

    In July, presidential aide Andrei Belousov proposed to withdraw from 14 companies some of their “super profits” - more than 500 billion rubles received due to changes in the external situation and the weakening of the ruble. Next month, the management of companies from the “Belousov’s List” met with him and Siluanov, and as a result of the negotiations it was agreed that business taxes would not be increased, but business would increase investment in socially important projects.

    Russia phasing out US dollar in military contracts in favor of local currencies – trade minister

    Moscow is dropping the greenback in major arms deals and switching to the Russian ruble and the national currencies of its partners, according to the country’s trade minister Denis Manturov.

    The minister added that the euro is currently the alternative to the dollar, with US currency used only when there’s no other way.

    “We are using various schemes, including settlements in rubles,” Manturov said in an interview with Russian daily RBC. “National currencies of our partners are used along with rubles purchased on the stock exchange.”

    The minister stressed that all contracts on delivery of the S-400 air defense missile systems are clinched either in rubles or in local currencies of the buyer countries. So far, supply contracts on the air defense systems have been signed with India, Turkey and China.

    Indian authorities agreed on supplies of S-400 systems at the beginning of October. The deal worth $5.4 billion was clinched during Russian President Vladimir Putin's two-day visit to New Delhi. India was also planning to purchase Russian T-14 Armata tanks and guided-missile frigates. The country is also planning to develop submarines and next-generation fighter jets in cooperation with Russia.

    In December 2017, Turkey and Russia clinched a deal worth $2.5 billion on the purchasing of two Russian-made S-400s. China was the first foreign nation to purchase S-400 systems. Beijing signed the deal on supplies of up to eight units of the S-400 equipment as early as in 2014. The contract value was estimated at around $3 billion. In September, the US State Department imposed sanctions on the Chinese military for buying Russian military hardware.

    The S-400 is a long-range air defense system designed to protect strategically important sites like key infrastructure objects, military units or ballistic missile launch silos against enemy aircraft and missiles. The system is capable of destroying multiple aerial targets at an extremely long range of up to 400 kilometers (nearly 250 miles).

    Kazakhstan, an "ally" against Western hegemony gets a pass too?

    Russia is doing what it can with what it has, China is 10x better at harnessing 1 billion people than India. These two seems to be the only ones worth a damn.

    But hey, lets blame it on Russia and Putin!

    I have never said that i want to fix the entire world , that will be ridiculous
    for even dreaming on an perfect planet.. Suspect

    I only talk about Russia ,because is the nation i believe ,(with the correct Leaders) ,
    will have plenty of opportunities to Influence the west..away of the Anglo-zio Jews unfair system,
    towards the Russian orbit..and create a new world system with Europe. Why Europe is important..
    because is at Russian borders..without Europe there is no NATO, or at least one that matters..
    and is Europe what allows US to auto declare itself the world leader. an alliance between Europe and
    Russia will put an end to NATO and to US wars and US leadership..and their warships no longer even have
    a place to refuel ,or go close to Russia.. Without Europe support Americans can't deploy missiles at Russian borders.. effectively Russia needs Europe on its orbit , if it was security and prosperity. and wants to put an end
    US military dreams of a leading the planet. or destroying Russia.

    So those nations you mention have no chance ever to end the US empire..not even close ,they are still
    in the process of development. They are not there yet.. only CHINA and Russia have a chance..
    but they have different issues ,that will not go there. however ,what i can say is that China is the only
    nation that is REALLY Fighting the American Empire ,with Leadership in Business.. ie.. huawei is the second
    most sold smart phone bran in the world ,already more advanced and popular than Apple. iphones..
    so this is leadership in action.. this is how you can Convince the west.. that it is possible to have nation development and progress outside the American business system..

    and to make things more Ironic.. China have a more ambitious space program today than Russia.
    Is right now traveling to the dark side of moon and planning a trip to mars earlier than Russia and its own
    space station.. This is how you draw the attention of the west.. with LEADERSHIP in nation development..

    Putin understand leadership differently.. with agriculture records.. with olympics medals , with pomoting
    "healthy food" ,and "healthy sports" that people get lifetime injuries.. lol1 and religion.. with records in selling gas.. and in combination with powerful nukes. He is simply not using the right tactics to defeat the US system.
    Trump top economic advisor even told it.. The day china goes ahead of US ,in AI ,robotics and high tech,,
    American economy will not have a chance to recover.. amazing eh? So what is Putin waiting?
    If they even say it.. Is High TECH , how you can defeat us economy ,that depends on it.. US leadership too..
    so this is where Russia economy needs to be focused.. in Leading in High Tech consumer business. this is what
    win the hearts of people.. the things they can buy for them..for their house and loved ones. A new home theather system is far more influential than Putin's orthodox church.. or Putin wheat records.. so he is wrong big time.
    Russia economy needs to be successful ,in the things that can help Russia become an alternative to popular high tech US business.. Americans love high tech.. love entertainment and you will win them in your pockets if you lead there .. if Russia fails to influence Americans and or Europeans.. will have to fight them.. in a war.. there is no other alternative.. Russia either influence or either fight.. but Putin can't expect for a single second ,that Russia will even have peace or be respected ,without offering no alternative to the west. Russia is the most disrespected nation in the world and Putin is to blame for it... how many times i have seen in Social media.. russian haters..
    main argument is.. something like this.. either Russia is a gas station.. or There is very few things that Russians can feel proud.. what does Russia make? this is what i see ,all the time in social media.. and they are right..
    Russia business influence is really bad in the west.. other than space.. there is nothing else , that can the attention of the west..and it is Putin the "Genius" ,who took the decision to cut in half the budget Russia space program.. Laughing while incrementing the spending in sports. Rolling Eyes Putin told sports promotes good relations and friendship..
    well i see nothing of that.. Russia did not gained an inch of good relations with US o Europe.. after $63 billions spend in Sochi and world cup 2018. IF Russia was landing with humans in the moon now.. then it will be drawing world attention and attracting major investments in Russia.. and the best thing of all. is that Americans can't sanction something they like and need.. as it is Russia space program.. Putin is making a major mistake in not
    seeking a total donation in space.. and allowing the west to make more headlines in space exploration achievements.

    You sound like the sort of crackpot nutjob that refuses to let their children get immunised because it is all a government conspiracy...

    Putin is doing just fine considering the hand he is playing with and the hands in the people he is playing... you think this game is fair and that doing the right things Putin could actually win the whole pot in this poker game... Putin knows it is not about winning... it is about improving things and getting stronger...

    But you don't understand this because you are a child that believes the good guys win... classic product of an upbringing soaked in Hollywood bullshit endings.

    c'mon Im afraid that Vann is structurally incapable to accept that Putin is actually doing a great job, taking into account all limitations of situation he (and Russia) is in. As for winning - yes it is about winning. But all depnds how you define a success criteria. Strong Russia, independent, with its very own pole in mulitpolar wold seems to be both Putin's objective and yhr achievable one.

    Oreshkin called on Russia and the EU to think about payments in euros in the trade in raw materials



    "For example, a significant reduction in the role of the dollar in international settlements would lead to the transition from dollar to euro in commodity trading. I think this is one of the areas where we should work with European countries, because neither in Russia nor in Europe is the dollar official means of payment. Nevertheless, energy trade between us for some reason is carried out for dollars, "Oreshkin said in an interview with RT .

    Putin MEeting with Business Investors and Cabinet MEeting 

    https://www.gazeta.ru/business/2018/12/26/12108703.shtml



    Business called for more spending on infrastructure projects now, from the new year. It can be seen that the economy has begun to slow down, and investments can support economic growth, ”said Kalinin. The development fund has already been created, the funds are budgeted, so it is important not to delay the start of project implementation.

    Kalinin also noted that business is worried about initiatives to convert some fees to taxes. In particular, it concerns the resort fee. The head of "Supports of Russia" expressed the opinion that this should not be done in the form of a tax.


    Business for its part asked for help from the state. In particular, there is a wish to clearly resolve the issue of what is movable and immovable property, the head of the “Supports of Russia” said. According to him, there are gaps in the current legislation. First Deputy Prime Minister, Anton Siluanov, according to Kalinin, assured that the corresponding explanation is being prepared and will soon see the light. Perhaps even before the New Year.

    The participant of the meeting, the head of the Support of Russia Alexander Kalinin told “Gazeta.ru” that the relevant ministers answered specific questions of entrepreneurs.
