Characteristics of the Russian economy July 2017

In this brief analysis, the current Russian economic characteristics are demonstrated through macroeconomic indicators, and the Russian-Hungarian trade relations are also examined. The Russian economy had a crisis due to the decline of the oil prices and the sanctions against the country that started in 2014; at the end of 2016 a slow recovery could be observed. The economic performance is still highly dependent on the oil trade which means a risk for the country. Russia’s long-term growth potential regardless of the currently expected short-term boom is not significant, primarily because of the low and decreasing productivity.

Corporate credits in Hungary, 2012-2016

In the following short analysis the Institute for Economic and Enterprise Research (IEER) examines the factors determining corporate borrowing and willingness to invest in Hungary. In the recent years several policies aimed to stimulate borrowing activity among Hungarian companies such as the reduction and the continuously low level of the central bank’s base rate or the Growth Loan program announced by the Hungarian National Bank. In our analysis three factors influencing the willingness to invest are examined: (i) interest margin and the development of interest rate environment, (ii) the quality of institutional and regulatory environment and (iii) the business climate and expectations of companies. Despite the policies implemented by the Hungarian National Bank interest margin is relatively high in Hungary in regional comparison making it difficult for companies to access financial resources. The uncertainty of institutional environment can make market players cautious as well. Business climate however, shows positive prospects, which means that business outlook does not explain the low demand for loans. In the future the reduction of interest margin, the improvement of institutional environment and competitiveness could have a positive effect on corporate borrowing and investments.
