The Role of Investment in Social Sector Development
15 February 2019

According to data from the Russian Ministry of Economic Development published as part of a draft national report on attracting private investment to develop infrastructure and applying public—private partnership mechanisms in the Russian Federation in order to ensure economic growth, the volume of investment in infrastructure secured annually must correspond to at least 4.7% of GDP (approximately RUB 4.5 trillion). Taking into account the fact that around 12.5% of public—private partnership projects are presently in the social sector, the potential volume of social infrastructure investment should stand at approximately RUB 500 billion annually. In order to attract businesses to this sector, it is essential to establish favourable conditions, improve the relevant legal and regulatory framework, remove hurdles and administrative barriers, and share best practices in public—private partnerships. Attracting private investment into the social sector will make it possible to improve the quality and accessibility of services and the satisfaction of the end users to whom they are provided, put in place conditions to expand the range of these services, and also facilitate the optimization of budgetary expenditure and the effective use of public assets.
