Онлайн-встреча с Александром Аузаном: меры поддержки для регионов

The Roscongress Foundation, in cooperation with the Russian regions, is continuing their work in gathering and scaling best practices, organising meetings between representatives of Russian federal subjects and leading businessmen, representatives of government agencies, and experts. On 22 April, an online meeting was with the Russian economist and member of the Government Commission on Administrative Reform Alexander Auzan.

Macroeconomic and institutional measures can be taken to support entrepreneurs and help mitigate any crises during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sharing information, conducting expert evaluations, sharing support practices for entrepreneurship, while discussing both the Russian and global economies at large with Russia’s best economists are all among the measures to advance the search for effective business solutions.

According to Alexander Auzan, the COVID-19 pandemic is a direct result of globalization and has provoked an ‘external shock crisis.’ Such a crisis is characterized by changes in the relative prices of assets, the application of authoritarian methods and competition crises, growing demand for new technologies, and a restructuring of global economic relations. Dr. Auzan analysed the Russian approach to finding balance in this difficult situation, including regional quarantine management and economic activity.

Alexander Auzan is a Doctor of Economic Sciences, Dean of the Faculty of Economics at Lomonosov Moscow State University, a professor, a commentator, Head of the Department of Applied Institutional Economics, a public figure, President of the Social Contract National Project Institute, and a member of various collegial management bodies.

The recorded version of the online meeting can be found on the Roscongress Foundation YouTube channel. The Roscongress Foundation’s Best Practices website (link in Russian) features a variety of regional best practices for attracting investment, increasing labour productivity, and implementing national projects.
