The Russian Economy: New Objectives and Horizons
Congress Centre, conference hall D1

The whole world is currently rethinking the structure of the global economic system that has prevailed in recent years with a focus on intensifying international cooperation in trade, economic, and financial affairs. The imposition of individual sanctions has significantly accelerated deglobalization processes, signalling to countries that they needed to find internal footholds to ensure the stability of their financial and budgetary systems. Russia has succeeded in making it through the first acute phase of this process. The measures it has taken to ensure financial and price stabilization, preserve jobs, and provide support to vulnerable social groups have made it possible to avoid a negative scenario of events. How quickly is the economy adapting to the new conditions? What kind of restructuring of the economy will this require? What growth drivers will contribute to this? Does Russia have its own footholds that can be developed in the future?
