The article presents the results of economic activity of industrial enterprises of Russia in 2016, and provides forecasts for 2017. In general, for the majority of surveyed enterprises 2016 turned out to be, in many respects, more successful than 2015, however, investment activity remained still very low. As to forecasts for 2017, the directors of enterprises suggest that industrial production will continue to decline, whereas the average rate of increase in prices for production will decelerate, which gives grounds for moderate optimism.
