"With a favourable forecast /for oil prices/, GDP growth may reach 5.5-5.8%," Dvorkovich said. "With low /oil/ prices, the Russian economy will hardly grow by more than 4.5%," he added.
Dvorkovich stressed that this indicator would depend, to a great extent, on the state of the world economy as a whole and, equally, on the state of the American economy.
According to Dvorkovich, precisely in the event of a reduced trade deficit in the United States, world economic growth can be expected at the level of 4%, with high oil prices being maintained.
"We hope that oil prices will stay high, at about 25.5-26 dollar per barrel," he noted.
