“We are interested in the inflation target (target) at the rate we have. Recently, we revised the forecast of price growth to 9.1% in 2017. Of course, if the exchange rate is not in line with our expectations for inflation, we are not satisfied. But our baseline scenario implies no shocks. We have a negative balance of the current account balance (ratio of exports and imports of goods and services), we have downgraded our forecast from minus $ 2.9 billion to minus $ 3.5 billion. But that’s OK, we have good export, raw material prices are rising. Exports, if not increase, it will remain at the same level. Imports are growing, but this investment imports. The business acquires machinery and equipment. And that the future GDP growth. And we know how we close this gap: direct investment, international borrowing. For the year our balance of payments is in surplus,” – said Gontareva.
