LOCALIZATION AS A MEANS TO CREATE A CLUSTER ECONOMY

11:00-12:15 Congress Centre, Conference Hall D4
The shift from a sectoral and silo approach to nurturing inter-industry clusters is a pivotal aspect of Russia’s development strategy to 2035. The experience of creating cluster ecosystems has boosted development and stimulated small and medium-sized business in the regions; localizing production is proving to be an effective tool in accelerating cluster development. How many and what clusters are needed to ensure well-balanced inter-industry and regional development? What should be done to make industrial cluster projects attractive and thus significantly raise localization thresholds? What is the role of small and medium-sized business in supporting clusters?

Highlights

Small and medium-sized companies are the foundation of the modern economy.

Pieter Boone
Chairman, General Manager, METRO Cash & Carry International

The policy of lobbying the interests of our small and medium entrepreneurs constitutes a significant part of the work of the entire government system.

Igor Orlov
Governor of the Arkhangelsk region

In our country, which has lived in an industry model for 80 years, the cluster ideology is progressing and is now shared by virtually all the participants in this roundtable.

Andrei Sharonov
Dean, Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO

The cluster economy requires long-term relationships and long-term perspectives to be considered. The focus should be not only on investment in the main factory, but on atmosphere, a system that will attract investment in the long term.

Pavel Sigal
First Vice President, All-Russian Non-Governmental Organization of Small and Medium-Sized Business OPORA RUSSIA

A cluster is not merely a set of production complexes. It’s a synergy where they work together while engaging R&D, education and consulting services.

Oleg Fomichev
State Secretary, Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation

We very much welcome the government’s proposal for innovative clusters and their development. We think that it is an important signal that Russia is open to supporting business and improving productivity.

Jan-Olof Jacke
President, AstraZeneca AB

Import substitution is a successful rebranding of industrial policy that has already been implemented for a long time. Now this trend is moving to a new stage: export-orientated import substitution.

Vasily Osmakov
Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation
