The Seventh Infrastructure Congress «The Russian PPP Week» will take place in Moscow from September 28 to October 1. The event is organized by the National PPP Center and the Roscongress Foundation.
Over the past seven years, the Russian PPP Week has established itself as the key event in Russia dedicated to attracting investment in infrastructure development, where the most pressing issues related to infrastructure project implementation are discussed and key market trends are shaped.
This years congress agenda will focus on promoting private investment in national projects, potential government support for infrastructure projects, harmonizing the existing laws with new investment mechanisms, expanding the scope of concession and PPP mechanisms, and issues related to the quality of project preparation. As part of the event, the regions will traditionally present their infrastructure projects slated for implementation. The congress covers a range of industry-specific topics such as construction of roads and railways, modernization of housing and utilities and urban improvement, creation of modern social facilities, environmental improvement, and development of IT technologies. Special attention will be paid to platform solutions for investment and infrastructure, and in particular, the ROSINFRA platform for infrastructure project support will present its new services.
As part of the global agenda, there will be a discussion dedicated to the problematic issues of attracting foreign investment in infrastructure projects in Russia. A number of events featuring foreign experts will be held in online format. A workshop of the Group of Twenty (G20) on infrastructure development was held last year at the congress venue with support from the Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Russia.
Every year, the Russian PPP Week brings together about 1,500 people, including federal and regional government officials, top managers of banks and investment construction companies, financial and legal advisors, and leading Russian and foreign experts. More than 150 journalists from federal and regional media cover congress events.
