Strengthening Aggregate fiscal discipline The government expects in the medium term to gradually reduce the fiscal deficit from budgeted 4.1 percent of GDP in 2010 to 2.9 percent in 2013 This is a reasonable plan, but the budget remains vulnerable to new expenditure pressures. And non-oil fiscal deficit will decline only gradually A more ambitious fiscal adjustment might be needed to strengthen Russias budgets capacity to deal with new shocks--reduce non-oil fiscal deficit faster to the long-term sustainable level Both revenue and expenditure measures will be needed 14
Measures to implement a more ambitious fiscal adjustment –Further broadening the non-oil tax base (e.g., increasing excises on tobacco, alcohol, vehicle licenses; revisiting VAT exemptions and some mineral extraction tax preferences). –Strengthening results monitoring systems to monitor target indicators of public programs. –Continue strengthening public expenditure management and controls –Reducing non-priority and unproductive expenditures e.g., crisis-related subsidies supporting select sectors of the economy. –Increasing the targeting of social assistance programs. –Taking steps to ensure the long-term sustainability of the pension system –Supporting structural reforms in the education and health sectors. –Implementing systematic annual public expenditure reviews to improve effectiveness of public expenditures

In Sum … Solid growth, the new oil windfall: - Solid growth (4% in 2010), accelerating to 4.4% in Lower than expected unemployment (7.6%) and poverty (12.7%) - Higher export and fiscal revenues Policy initiatives: - Progress on WTO - Privatization - Effectiveness of public expenditures Concerns: - Fiscal policy risk risingpotentially escalating expenditures during political cycle - Delays in structural reforms
Policy challenges Reducing inflation Implementing medium-term fiscal adjustment towards sustainable non-oil fiscal deficit (4.3% of GDP). Improving the efficiency of public expenditure to create fiscal space for productive infrastructure Strengthening the investment climate for the private sector remain among key long-term challenges.
