Presentation of the Results of the Russian Regional Investment Climate Index
Since 2014, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum has been the traditional platform for presenting the Russian Regional Investment Climate Index. Since it was first established, the index has proven its effectiveness as a tool for assessing efforts by the authorities at all levels to improve the conditions for doing business in Russia’s regions. The results stimulate competition for investment at the regional level. Which regions have demonstrated progress in the index? What are the key reasons some regions have maintained their high position in the index for the past four years? How is the business community participating in the work of regional project teams?
