Realizing Russia's Competitive Edge
Business Breakfast
Pavilion 5, Business Breakfast Hall 5.5

Investment in integrated urban development projects – including the provision of high-quality housing with the necessary social, transport, and utility infrastructure, as well as the creation of jobs and public spaces – can not only satisfy high demand for modern, comfortable housing in Russia, but also provide high-yield returns for investors. Are there any case studies of development projects, both in Russia and internationally, that can serve as a template for expansion? What is the right mix of incentives and public and private sector roles that leads to success?

Key moments

“Housing cooperatives that receive state support also run tenders. But obviously this support should be targeted”.
Alexander Braverman
“When the economic situation settles down, we will definitely see longer-term money – pensions, insurance – going to housing”.
Igor Shuvalov
“The greater the share of high-quality housing on the market, the more popular the governor becomes. And it’s the governors, of course, who inspire confidence in the investors”.
