PUTTING DOMESTIC INVESTMENT TO WORK TO DRIVE EXPANSION

17:15-18:30 Congress Centre, Conference Hall D1
In fast-growing economies, the main sources of economic growth are domestic and private investment. Corporate profits, private savings, and state and non-governmental pension funds can all be more effectively channelled into financing productive elements of the Russian economy, providing needed corporate and infrastructure funding while enhancing productivity. What mechanisms should the government and regulators consider for facilitating safe deployment of domestic savings into return-generating ventures? Should the corporate bond market or other alternative investment instruments be developed further? What is the role of investment in diversifying the economy and which sectors can demonstrate the greatest potential?

Highlights

The solutions that can provide for an increase in investments in the economy are an increase in population mobility and an increase in access to skilled manpower.

Sergey Shvetsov
First Deputy Governor, Central Bank of the Russian Federation

Each region should concentrate on the specific competences in which it is strong and which it can provide with good manpower and good stable legislation, so that no investors encounter problems. This also includes high-quality state governance, advanced legislation and availability of the requisite infrastructure. And all this forms the conditions for investments to grow.

Sergei Morozov
Acting Governor of Ulyanovsk Region

All our investments must be more productive. Only then will we be able, step by step, to achieve competitiveness and to offer the same competitive goods in the foreseeable future.

Alexey Kudrin
Chairman of the Board, Center for Strategic Research; Deputy Chairman, Economic Council under the President of the Russian Federation

Large-scale privatization of major state companies is required, since the level of efficiency from the perspective of revenues per employee is exceptionally low in the current system.

Mikhail Shamolin
President, Chief Executive Officer, Executive Board Director, Chairman of the Management Board, Sistema

Russian metals companies are competitive in terms of quality and product range, as well as by virtue of their low production costs.

Alexey Mordashov
Chairman, Severstal

The practice of withdrawing pension accumulations must be stopped and these funds returned to the market, since pension funds are precisely the monies that have the first opportunity to become long-term investments and go into projects.

Mikhail Shamolin
President, Chief Executive Officer, Executive Board Director, Chairman of the Management Board, Sistema

Severstal’s main investment in the future will be made in creating value added products, a client service and further cuts in costs. At the same time, we do not intend to invest in any substantial increase in capacity, as has been the case for the last 15–20 years, in view of the shortage of demand.

Alexey Mordashov
Chairman, Severstal
