The New Economic Order: Responding to the Challenges of the Time
Congress Centre, conference hall B2

The situation on global markets, the geopolitical environment, and the media are putting serious pressure on Western companies that work in Russia. It is of paramount importance for Western investors and the Russian Federation to establish an open, friendly dialogue and look for accessible ways to interact and cooperate. In this regard, discussions about the social responsibility of Western business, including retaining jobs, as well as the fulfillment of companies’ obligations in economic and environmental matters are particularly valuable in normalizing conditions for companies to function normally in Russia. Western investors that continue to work in Russia, along with Russian business, need the government to engage in systemic work with companies as well as long-term support programmes and further measures to improve economic stability given the current external and internal shocks.
