New Investment Policy Mechanisms: Engines of Growth

24 May, 11:00–12:15
Harnessing Russia’s Growth Potential
Panel Session
Pavilion G, Conference Hall G5

President of the Russian Federation has decreed the Government of the Russian Federation to ensure that by 2024 the country has one of the five largest economies and the highest economic growth rate in the world, all the while maintaining macroeconomic stability and an inflation rate of 4% or lower. Meeting these challenges will require additional favourable and predictable financial, economic, and regulatory conditions for doing business and attracting long-term private capital for investment projects, including industrial and infrastructure projects. The Government of the Russian Federation is proposing new investment policy mechanisms that ensure those project conditions remain unchanged until the investment has been recouped. Thus, the government will be stimulating cooperation between different sectors, demand for the output of tech entrepreneurs, and the development of the necessary infrastructure for industrial and other projects financed by taxes. Which branches and sectors of the economy will become engines of growth in the near future? What are the possibilities of making individual adjustments for new investment projects through special investment contracts? What are the conditions for attracting long-term private financing for new investment projects, including high-tech production (factories of the future, developmental plants, etc.) and the necessary infrastructure? What are the mechanisms for creating demand for the output of tech entrepreneurs and innovative solutions?
