RECONCILING GROWTH AND SECURITY STRATEGIES FOR THE GLOBAL ECONOMY

11:00-12:15 Pavilion G, Conference Hall G6
The global economy has more than doubled in size since 2000, reaching a peak of USD 78.6 trillion in 2014, and the World Bank is projecting 3.5% growth for 2017. Can stable growth be maintained under the current conditions, or should there be a shift in emphasis towards sustainable development, giving priority to long-term social and ecological aspects? Is it possible to have inclusive growth in the future? What might be the impact of deceleration and, in some sectors, outright reversal of globalization? How might the major global economies adjust their investment strategies? And how should business adjust to shifting sentiments for economic security?

Highlights

If you are getting growth, you will have better security, better stability. The reason why security and stability gets impaired is when people feel they are not getting what is their right or due; they are not getting the kind of opportunities that should rightfully be theirs.

Arundhati Bhattacharya
Chairman of the Board of Directors, State Bank of India

Russia has done quite well on the Doing Business index of the World Bank. In 2012, Russia was 120th, last year 40th, but if you look at the different elements of the index, there are areas where there is so much more that can be done for that spirit of competitiveness and private sector to grow and materialise.

Kristalina Georgieva
Chief Executive Officer, World Bank Group

Our key resource in Mother Russia is not oil, it’s people, it’s our human capital… We have people who are clever, well educated, eager to work.

Oleg Deripaska
President, Member of the Board of Directors, RUSAL

They say some economies – including Russia – suffer from a resource curse. It is not a curse, though, but the ability of these countries to exploit opportunities that emerge as a result of exports.

Anton Siluanov
Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation

The art of the state consists in cutting off the volatility potential of a resource-based economy in the event of a change in prices for certain raw commodities.

Anton Siluanov
Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation

I don’t agree with the World Bank that Russian business is not innovative. Just look at Silicon Valley and what 75,000 ex-Soviet Union citizens – Russians, or Ukrainians, or Belarusians – are doing.

Oleg Deripaska
President, Member of the Board of Directors, RUSAL

Private initiative is what really matters. Yet we cannot say that less regulation and fewer rules are always a good thing. Regulation must be smart, high-quality and correspond to the risks we face.

Elvira Nabiullina
Governor, Central Bank of the Russian Federation
