THE NATIONAL RATING OF RUSSIAN REGIONS: INITIAL RESULTS

09:45-11:00 PepsiCo Café


The national rating of the investment climate in Russia’s regions is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the efforts made at all levels of government in order to improve the conditions for doing business there. It is expected that the rating will not only be a means of measuring these efforts, but also an effective tool for identifying and disseminating best practices in working with investors. Pilot testing of the rating system was launched across 22 Russian regions in late March. What are the initial results of the evaluation? What steps taken by regional authorities enabled good performance indicators to be achieved? Is it possible to achieve equally good results in all Russian regions?
