expected increase in global trade by a third by 2030, to 17 billion tonnes per year, have force carriers to look for alternative routes to ship goods.
Russia can offer such routes, with its advantageous geographic position and borders with 18 countries, access to sea basins, as well as an extensive railway network. By utilizing these advantages, Russia will be able to increase the throughput of transport routes to 400 million tonnes per year by 2030, boost exports of non-primary goods to USD 250 billion, and generate
up to USD 100 billion in revenue from the transit of goods. We will discuss what needs to happen to achieve such indicators, and what has already been done now, during the session
‘Russian Transport Corridors for Global Logistics: Technological, Efficient, and Reliable’.

Main themes:
— Key competitive advantages of Russian transport corridors, points of growth, and
impediments to development
— Infrastructure modernization: what investments will be required and where will they be
— Growth in industrial production and exports: how can we build a unified sustainable
transport system that customers need?
— Efficient import logistics and attracting transit: smart regulation, tariff changes, and
