The Russian Economy: New Objectives and Horizons
Congress Centre, conference hall B2

Taking into account the current realities, the only way to preserve and develop Russian business is to improve the system that guarantees the observance of entrepreneurs’ rights as well as mechanisms for protecting Russian businesses. Attention needs to be paid to reducing pressure on business from law enforcement and regulatory authorities in order to maintain, support, and develop favourable business conditions in Russia. What additional measures to protect business rights need to be taken in the current situation? What legal mechanisms are effective in the short and long term? What means of protection can be provided to a Russian entrepreneur who operate and has assets abroad?
