The level of foreign direct investment in Russia should increase to $60-70 billion “in the foreseeable future,” Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday in an annual report on his government’s performance to parliament.
“We are setting the goal of achieving a level of $60-70 billion worth of foreign direct investment a year and then will increase that level further,” he said.
Putin did not specify the time frame when this level should be achieved. FDI in 2010 was $13.8 billion.
