The Russian Economy: From Adaptation to Growth
Pavilion G, conference hall G1

International and business cooperation will undoubtedly result in new cross-border projects, creating additional avenues for growth and serving as a catalyst for the development of businesses of all forms. In the current economic landscape, collaboration between small, medium and large businesses can be a tool for mutually beneficial cooperation. The integration of small businesses into production cycles not only lowers costs for large companies but also generates demand for smaller enterprises. Is such cooperation possible between small and large businesses in modern conditions? How can cooperation be established within industries? What are the main difficulties in interaction? What measures need to be taken to create an effective system of collaboration? What kind of support and in what sectors is needed for growing SMEs?
