Trust Between Business and Government: Investing in the New Reality

The Russian Economy: From Adaptation to Growth
Pavilion G, conference hall G7

In the current geopolitical situation, caused by economic instability and strong external sanctions pressure, the key challenge for Russia is to attract private investment into the national economy. The government is adopting a set of measures aimed at protecting the interests of business and creating clear and long-term conditions for the implementation of investment projects. To increase the level of trust between business and government, all of Russia's regions are standardizing their investor relations institutions based on the principles of client-centricity and best practices. The effect of state support measures is increased on the basis of the regional investment standard. A mechanism of investment protection and promotion agreements is being developed to share risks with investors and provide projects with the necessary infrastructure. An investment protection and promotion agreement allows an investor to shape the foreseeable conditions of the implementation of an investment project, as well as to recover part of the costs associated with its implementation. Today, how prepared are Russian regions for large-scale capital investments? How effective are agreements on the protection and promotion of investment as a mechanism to support new investment projects? What needs to be done to speed up the "customer journey" of an investor? Will there be a system of investment planning? What are the future plans for unlocking the investment potential of domestic businesses?
