Russian Investment Forum Releases Architecture of Business Programme

The architecture of the Russian Investment Forum’s business programme has been posted on the event’s official website. All aspects of regional development will be considered as part of the business programme sessions.

«In terms of the Russian economy’s development, one of the key focuses is regional development. In a country as large as Russia, the regions are the ones that generate manpower, small businesses, innovative projects, and infrastructure, and titanic work is being done to push the Russian economy into a leading position in the world. The upcoming forum will be dedicated to this», Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the Forum’s Organizing Committee Dmitry Kozak said.

Adviser to the Russian President Anton Kobyakov, who serves as Deputy Chairman and Executive Secretary of the Russian Investment Forum’s Organizing Committee, noted the importance of the Forum’s agenda for regional development: «The goal of the Forum is to identify both growth points and problematic issues in the development of the regions, to determine the focus for next year, and attract investment where it is most needed. This is why a significant part of the Forum’s programme will be devoted to social development with special events and business sessions with a social focus. This agenda remains one of the most important in the framework of Russian business events».

The ‘Investing in the Regions: Goals, Objectives, and Tools’ pillar of the business programme will feature discussions on the implementation of national projects, the creation of industrial clusters, the development of regional infrastructure, the acceleration of regional small business, public-private partnership mechanisms, and the development of urban infrastructure.

Participants in discussions on the theme of ‘Digital Transformation of the Economy. Practical Results’ will talk about the initial results of digital transformation, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, investment in data processing and storage in Russia, and the development of the Russian IT sector.

The sessions on ‘Human Capital — the Basis for Future Leadership’ will be devoted to such issues as the development of education, social entrepreneurship, attracting youth to the regions, the development of creative industries as well as women’s and social entrepreneurship in the regions.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will hold meetings with the heads of Russia’s regions and representatives of the business community as part of the Forum.

The Healthy Life Forum will be held on the starting day of the Russian Investment Forum on 12 February. The Forum’s programme also includes Youth Entrepreneurship Day and a financial seminar for banks that are members of the SCO interbank association. The winners of the ‘Best Social Project of the Year’ national contest for social entrepreneurship projects will be awarded at the Forum.

The Forum venue will also host a traditional exhibition of regional investment projects.

The Russian Investment Forum will be held on 1214 February at the Sirius Park of Science and Art in Sochi.
