Governors Club: A New Communications Format for Regional Leaders

The Governors Club held its first meeting in Moscow and was attended by the leaders of ten regions: the Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov, Sakhalin, Ryazan, Oryol, and Chelyabinsk Regions, the Republics of Sakha (Yakutia) and Adygea, and the Transbaikal and Stavropol Territories. The meeting was also attended by First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration and Rosatom State Corporation Chairman of the Supervisory Board Sergey Kiriyenko and Roscongress Foundation Chairman of the Board and CEO Alexander Stuglev.

The idea of ​​creating such a club was proposed by the Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation and Nizhny Novgorod Region Governor Gleb Nikitin. The Governors Club aims to attract resources and consolidate the experience that the leaders of 21 regions have gained in terms of improving existing and creating new systems to improve the efficiency of public administration, the social sector, and manufacturing. The Club’s key goals are to identify the best projects to achieve regional targets, draft joint legislative initiatives in state and municipal government, reduce administrative barriers, and improve the efficiency of public administration.

Nikitin and Rosatom Director General Alexey Likhachev proposed holding meetings of the Governors Club at Russia’s largest forums: the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, and others.

«The regions and their projects are traditionally given significant attention at our events. Roscongress actively supports the creation of the Club. The idea of ​​holding regular meetings with leaders is a wonderful initiative. We are ready to provide support in all organizational matters. The well-conceived infrastructure of our forums as well as the presence of a special zone — the Governors Lounge — will enable the leaders of Russia’s regions to focus their shared efforts on regional development. I am certain that the Governors Club that has been created is destined to become an effective platform for dialogue», Stuglev said.

At all Roscongress events, the regions will have the opportunity to present their investment and business projects in the exhibition area. The Foundation’s special units — RK-Investments and Business Priority — aim to improve the competitiveness of the Russian economy by promoting domestic innovative products and technologies.

An extensive business agenda, exhibition opportunities, and the line-up of participants create the conditions for a comprehensive presentation of the regions and the exchange of experience among their leaders.

The next meeting will take place at the Russian Investment Forum, which will be held in Sochi on 12–14 February. The meeting participants also agreed to hold offsite meetings of the Club in the regions at least twice a year.
