15 Jun , 14:30–16:00
Russian Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Forum
Congress Centre, conference hall D4

In today's realities, the activities of state corporations and companies with state participation, due to the extent of their influence on systemic processes in the Russian economy, are becoming one of the main factors in the development of small and medium-sized businesses. This refers both to direct interaction between state corporations and SMEs in terms of procurement activities, as well as to the implementation of new cooperation mechanisms. At present, it is public organizations that ensure an open dialogue between sectors. They aim to develop the most effective systemic mechanisms for consolidating the interests of state-owned companies and SMEs. The latter form the sustainability of the state economy by maintaining a balance of the parties' interests. How can the interests of state-owned companies and SMEs be consolidated? How can small and medium-sized businesses start working with state corporations and what cooperation mechanisms need to be implemented?
