Russia may revise GDP growth forecast upward - Nabiullina

YEKATERINBURG. July 15 (Interfax) - The Economic Development Ministry plans to revise the GDP growth forecast upward this August, Economic Development Minister Elvira Nabiullina said.

"We haven't reviewed it yet, but that is a real possibility," Nabiullina said in Yekaterinburg on Thursday.

The forecast, currently about 4%, will be reviewed at the end of August, she said. "We will give a new version of the forecast. We hope it is upward because in principle the economy is growing pretty well," she said.
