The Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation lays in the next three years the budget surplus. According to authorities, in 2019, the surplus could reach 1.8% of GDP, in 2020 this figure will be equal to 1% of GDP in 2021 will decrease to a surplus of 0.6% of GDP. We believe that such optimism is associated with high oil prices, which may persist in the next two to three years, depending on how it will be regulated by the market.
With high probability, the transaction OPEC+ will exist in one form or another until the end of 2019, after which its parameters can change significantly in the direction of increasing production that will lead to a gradual decrease in quotations and, therefore, reduce revenues. And this is dictated by the decrease in the surplus in subsequent years.
We’ll also assume that with the decline in oil prices, the Ministry will reduce the volume of currency purchases in the domestic market.
The expenditure budget proposed by the Finance Ministry the option will increase by about 1 trillion every year. They will be about 17.8 trillion in 2019, to 18.8 trillion in 2020 and 19.8 trillion in 2021.
Of the most important events of the day is to highlight the speech of the ECB President, Mario Draghi. The register of shareholders to receive dividend on Monday will close “Fortum”, “Bashneft” and “MTS”.
