A strong political position calls for a strong economy. At the present time, several programmes for Russia’s economic development are under discussion. One of them is a medium-term development programme, Strategy for Growth, in which Russia would begin to see growth higher than the global average by 2019, and double its GDP by 2035. But no programme is feasible without public support and debate. What is the potential for bringing in new sources and identifying comprehensive solutions and projects to ensure steady growth against a background of global economic transformation? Is it possible to set this programme in motion as early as today, and what decisions need to be taken in order for this to happen?
