To this end, the economist suggested that “a fiscal rule that will allow you to restrain the strengthening of the real ruble exchange rate”, as the competitiveness of domestic “diversifitsirovannoj economy” largely depends on the national currency.
However, Nabiullina said that such a diversified economy in Russia yet, it is only that the budget needs to reduce its dependence on oil rents. Recall that about that state leaders say over the past years.
While in the past months, the share of non-oil and gas budget revenues beginning to rise and exceed income from oil and gas, but this is solely due to falling hydrocarbons.
Also Nabiullina said that the Central Bank does not intend to abandon the floating exchange rate.
Recall that over the past weeks, economists and political scientists have repeatedly warned about the potential devaluation, explaining it by the need to provide social benefits.
