Russian Agriculture Growth: Can Russia feed the world?
The Russian agricultural sector is growing quickly helped by protection from imports and significant investment. It is likely to continue to grow as infrastructure bottlenecks are addressed. This offers significant opportunities for investors as this is one of the few natural resource sectors where foreign investment is encouraged. The government is keen to encourage both exports and processing domestically.

The slowdown in investment since 2013 means that macro-economically it would make sense for the government to boost infrastructure spending to give the economy a Keynesian kick-start.
