so jew of you , i bet you are watching Russia Today regulary till you get stoned and visualy impaired from anger.
btw did you know:
Russia is ranked 8th in investor attractiveness ratings compiled by experts of the UN Conference on Trade and Development for corporate investments in 2012-14. Am UNCTAD survey says that $3.5 out of $100 of global investment was invested in Russia in 2011. This amounts to $53 billion.
According to UNCTAD, the volume of direct investments attracted to Russia in 2011 amounted to about 3% of the GDP. The estimates given by Russia’s Economic Development Ministry and Central Bank were $51.9 bn and $48.5 bn respectively. Moscow thus demonstrated a record high level of investor-friendliness. Kirill Dmitriyev of the Russian Private Equity Fund, comments.
"Russia is among the top ten countries attractive for investment. It has outstripped Vietnam, Mexico, and Japan, and this trend is set to continue. The Economic Development Ministry and the Strategic Initiatives Agency have been taking specific measures to improve the investment climate in Russia. Russia has established effective partnerships with other countries. One of such partnerships is with China’s investment fund. It makes it possible for Russia and China to invest in various projects jointly."
Even though Russia has made progress in improving the investment climate, it has been outflanked by other countries. Last year, Russia was 5th on the UNCTAD’s list. The UNCTAD’s method of assessment does not account for the outflow of capital, Alexander Abramov of the Higher School of Economics, says.
"The UNCTAD ratings account for the influx of capital, not for the outflow of capital. With this in mind, Russia is poised to secure leading positions in the volume of attracted foreign investments over the next few years. We also have to bear it in mind that more than $53bn of foreign direct investments is taken out of the country. Last year, the negative balance of foreign direct investment totaled $10bn."
According to experts, the Russian government should step up efforts to reform the economic legislation and guarantee economic stability. Russia also needs to carry out structural reforms and revise the investment principles, analysts say. At present, the bulk of investments go into short-term projects as investors are wary of investing in long-term ones.
