Approved at a meeting of the Government of the Russian Federation Protocol No. 42, dated December 30, 2009.
The results of the third quarter of 2009 show that the Russian economy has passed the acute phase of the crisis, as evidenced by the resumption of economic growth in the second half of 2009. According to preliminary estimates, GDP grew 1.1% in the third quarter and 1.9% in the fourth quarter (including seasonal factors).
The anti-crisis measures improved the situation on the labour market and facilitated stabilisation in the agricultural sector. The decline of annual industrial production slowed considerably, from 14.3% in the first quarter to 5% in the fourth quarter.
