Foreign Exchange Market The trends in the Russian foreign exchange market reflected the global trends for gradual increase in the USD exchange rate vs. the Euro. A short-term USD weakening was observed only after the news on terrorists acts in London. This resulted in that the USD exchange rate varied in the range of 1.19 – 1.20 during the first week. High oil prices, which kept strong and large supply of foreign currency in the domestic market, didn’t let the RUR exchange rate go down.. However, the USD began to clime down in the FOREX market, after the news on adoption of the European Constitution and referendum in Luxemburg as well as positive figures relating to business activity in France and Germany. In addition, increasing threat of terrorist acts also weakened the USD exchange rate. The USD exchange rate continued to fluctuate thus reflecting the movement in the FOREX market.
In the period between July 1 and 22, the USD exchange rate declined by 0.05 rubles (-0.17%) to reach 28.58 rubles per US dollar. Total volume of trading on USD in the SELT electronic trading system was nearly $25.89 ml US dollars with an average weighted turnover being $1.62 ml US dollars ( nearly $26.44 ml US dollars with an average weighted turnover being $1.56 ml US dollars in June ) in the period between July 1 and 22.

Polevoi Real Economy Sector: Trends and Factors According to the preliminary outcomes, the GDP value grew by 5.6% in the first half of against 7.6% in the same period of the previous year. Industrial production growth accounted for 4.% as compared to the first half of 2004, which is by 3.3 percentage points below the similar parameter of the previous year. Growth in of the construction work volume accounted for 5.8% against 14.2% in the previous year. Capital investments grew by 9.4% against 12.6% in the same period of the previous year under intensive growth in the gross national savings. A share of capital investments accounted for 14.1% of GDP in the first half of 2005.
IET’s macroeconomic estimates for the end of 2005 show that ongoing high movements of external and investment demand remain principal growth factors under the current trends and scenary changes of economic environment. The GDP is expected to grow by 5.1 to 5.5% in 2004 as compared to the previous year, provided that the expected growth of capital investments vary in the range of 109.5 to 110.0%, exports in the range of 122.8 - 126.6%% and a share of the unemployed in total number of the work force is at the level of 7.6%.
The first half of 2005 was characterized by a weakening growth intensity almost for all types of economic activity. According to the preliminary outcomes, the GDP grew by 5.6% in the first half of 2005 against 7.6% in the same period of the previous year. The structure of the produced GDP was dominated by retarding growth rates in industrial production and construction works, which was compensated by continuously stable movements relating to retail turnover and services. Industrial production by 4.0 % as compared to the first half of 2004, which is by 3.3 percentage points below the similar parameter in the previous year, while construction works grew up by 5.8% against 14.2% of the previous year. Moderate movements of the industrial production growth was one of the factors that slowed down growth rates in transport freight turnover to 2.8% against 7.8% in the first half of 2004.
Favorable external economic conditions continued to have a positive effect on the overall economic situation. However, economic growth rates became dependant to a larger degree on both the level of demand and price fluctuations in the world market and production capacity of mining industries under a high concentration of domestic exports within a small group of raw materials. Growth of exports accounted for 40.6% in terms of value in the period between January and May 2005, which exceeded by 13.7 percentage points the similar parameter in the previous year. It should be noted that almost 4/percent of export of goods the first half of 2005 is explained by extremely high prices of fuel and energy resources, metallic minerals and metals in the world markets. Profitability of the products sold during the Quarter 1, 2005 accounted for 27.1% for fuel and energy minerals and 58% for metallic minerals and other types of mineral products with the 15.0% average level of profitability for the economy as a whole. However, the growth of revenues from export operations had no significant effect on economic growth rates.
The production index in mining operations slowed down to 101.4% in the first half of 2005, including production of oil ( down to 102.2% ) and metallic minerals ( down to 98.7% ). Consequently, this resulted in retardation of export growth rates down to 105.9% in physical terms against 111.7% in the first half of 2004. In spite of exclusively favorable prices of hydrocarbons, production performance was dominated by reduction of oil export growth rates down to 101.5%.

industrial production transport freight turnover volume of work in constriction retail turnover Figure 1. Industrial Production Growth Rates by Type of Economic Activity in 2003 – 2005, as % of corresponding quarter of the previous year Development of the Russian economy has been characterized by a moderate level of domestic consumer goods production over the last two years. The rate of food products production accounted for 104.2% with a decline of non-food products by nearly 3.5% in the first half of 2005.
Continuous profitability of Russian foods products is determined by inertial processes of post-crisis adaptation of production to the traditional structure of consumer preferences and activation of the investment policy on modernization and reconstruction of production in 2000 - 2003. Food production is leading in the industrial production in terms of replacement of fixed assets. The fixed asset replacement coefficient has been accounting for 2.9% in food production over the last five years with the average production figure being 1.5% in the economy as a whole. Growth of imports was kept down by expanding competitive food production facilities on the basis modern technological methods. In addition, such fundamental factors as changes in the retail turnover structure and imports for the sake of organized forms, as well as formation of systems of promotion of Russian goods in the domestic market should be mentioned as well.
The situation in the non-food products market is aggravated by the fact that poor activity of the domestic business has been provoking aggressive import at the backgrounds of advancing growth in real personal incomes and wages relative to retail turnover.
Gradual improvement of social parameters in economic development were responsible for steady expansion of households final consumption this year. Real personal incomes growth accounted for 8.3%, real wages for 8.0 % and real amount of monthly pension entitlements for 7.2% in the first half of 2005 as compared to the similar period in the previous year.
