Realizing the Economic Potential of Russia

Recent developments in the global markets have both provided renewed impetus for structural change and development in a number of sectors in Russia and resulted in the extremely attractive pricing of Russian assets. Given the need to attract capital and incorporate technology and other competitive attributes, both Russian and foreign investors are entering an optimal period for new tie-ups and partnerships. Which companies and sectors can best benefit from mergers or investments from foreign partners and how can this provide an impetus for growth? What steps, if any, should the government take to support new entrants into the market?
