Congress Centre, conference hall D1

Since 2014, the results of the Russian Regional Investment Climate Index have traditionally been presented at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Since it was first established, the index has offered an accurate assessment of the steps taken by government bodies at all levels to improve the business climate. In doing so, it has helped boost competition as regions endeavour to make themselves more attractive to investors. Which regions have demonstrated the best results in the index, and what practices were effectively implemented? What is the secret of regions that have successfully cemented their leading positions in the index over the past five years? What have business associations made of the results published by the index since it was first established? This year, the Russian government is working with business and expert associations to draft a programme of measures aimed at facilitating the launch of a new investment cycle. What tried-and-tested tools should this programme incorporate, and what new features will it offer? What role should businesses and regional government bodies play in the implementation of the programme?
