Quality services for business and improved institutions are well noted by the business community in all regions of Russia. On 25 May 2018, ASI will present its new edition of National Investment Climate Index based on the surveys of more than 400 thousand entrepreneurs all across Russia. The main conclusions and the latest results in improving the investment climate and eliminating administrative barriers will be discussed by the participants of the session «Doing Business in Russia: What has been achieved and what’s next?» What has been done in recent years to warm up Russia’s business climate? What are the government support measures that the private sector, including foreign companies working in Russia, can apply for? How can the business environment be made even more conducive? Are there any reserves for further improvement?
