Harnessing Russia’s Growth Potential
Panel Session
Congress Centre, Conference Hall B2

Russia as a jurisdiction is gaining new competitive advantages as new laws are developed and adopted, forming the legal foundation for the national economy’s switch to a ‘digital gear’. At the same time, the needs dictated by the ‘traditional’ economy have to be met. What should the roadmap for developing the legislation of digital markets look like? Which best international practices could be used to advance Russia’s jurisdiction? To what extent should the regulator place trust in business to preserve entrepreneurial freedom? In what ways could the Russian legal system be improved to foster a trust economy?
