Moscow, January 8th, 2020

Since 2000, the Higher School of Economics (HSE) has been surveying a pool of professional forecasters for a wide range of Russia’s economic development indicators. Later, it started on the consensus forecast for Belarus and Kazakhstan. The key participants in the surveys are leading research and analysis institutions such as Bloomberg Economics, JP Morgan, the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies, S&P Global Ratings, Sberbank CIB, and Alfa Bank.

The Eurasian Fund for Stabilization and Development has been included in the list of experts submitting regular short- and long-term socioeconomic development forecasts. The EFSD research team’s participation in HSE surveys helps conducting an in-depth analysis of the socioeconomic development of Russia, Kazakhstan, and Belarus.

By combining received estimates, the HSE Centre of Development Institute publishes consensus forecasts for macroeconomic indicators such as GDP growth, inflation, and national currencies’ exchange rates. Consensus forecasts provide a comprehensive overview of the countries’ future economic development while also outline the main direction of the research community’s expectations. As a result, macroeconomist surveys become an analytical tool benefiting companies, the stock market, governmental institutions, and the media.
