MODELS FOR REVAMPING RUSSIAN INDUSTRIAL COMPETITIVENESS

16:00-17:15 Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.2


With the US reshoring manufacturing capacity and China seeking to move beyond labour-intensive production, the global industrial landscape is undergoing fundamental shifts. Facing stiffer global competition – but possessing a well-educated, highly skilled workforce and rich in energy resources – what approaches might Russian industrialists and policymakers learn and adopt from the US, China, and others to shore up competitiveness? What immediate steps should be taken to put Russia on a path towards reaching its industrial potential?
