Business in Brief

Russian Industry 'Worrying' A dismal performance by Russian industry at the start of 2006 was partly due to a lack of competitiveness and cannot be blamed solely on an exceptionally cold spell, Deputy Economic Development and Trade Minister Andrei Klepach said on Friday. ""This fall is really worrying. It is not only the cold, it is also low competitiveness. It is a continuation of the illnesses that were in full flower last year,"" Klepach told reporters. Industrial growth slowed to a mere 1 percent in February in year-on-year terms, with manufacturing -- especially carmaking -- hit hardest. Klepach said that if the current trend continued, Russian industry would grow less than 4 percent in 2006, below an official target of 4.4 percent.
