The New Economic Povestka* (NEP): The What, the How, the Who?
25 May 2018
Over the past several years, Russia has built a solid macroeconomic foundation. Inflation and unemployment are at record lows, there is a fiscal surplus, and international reserves are growing. Yet experts only estimate the potential for growth between 1.5% and 2% annually. What do these figures mean? They indicate an economy that is trailing behind, and a growing gap in relation to developed countries. As a result, acceleration of the economy will be at the top of the new government’s povestka. And a sharp acceleration can only be achieved by digitization and introduction of modern technologies. The government will have to accomplish a technological transformation, preserve the confidence of people and businesses, and most importantly, build an effective and efficient system of public management. Without this, such a transformation will be impossible. What set of reforms could accelerate economic growth to 3–4% annually? How can we build a modern system of public management? Who will implement the new economic povestka?
* Povestka means ‘agenda’ in Russian. The abbreviation NEP was originally used in Soviet Russia in 1922–1928 for the New Economic Policy.
