High growth rates in the economy will be preserved in
It is noted that in January-May 2017, GDP growth slowed to 6.8 percent. In May, there was also a decline in output in a number of extractive and processing industries. At the same time, the increase in basic metals output remains high (52.5 percent by January-May 2016). This, with a margin, compensates for the decline in activity in other branches of the industrial sector.
Construction, agriculture, retail trade demonstrate stable moderate growth. Most probably, they will form the basis of growth in the second half of 2017, when the effect of a low base in the gold sector will be exhausted.
