The Russian Economy: From Adaptation to Growth
Congress Centre, zone B, 2nd floor, conference hall B3

The creation of a national system of price indicators under present-day conditions is one of the key objectives aimed at ensuring economic growth and overcoming the barriers that hinder the development of the Russian economy. The formation and development of national indicators is designed to reduce dependence on foreign suppliers of price information, increase pricing transparency in commodity markets and provide high-quality information and analytical support both to market players and to consumers. What tools will be used to create national price indicators? What legislative changes will have to be made for their creation? What role can the creation of national price indicators play in the development of international trade, including within the framework of BRICS and integration processes across the EAEU space?
