Uniting the Efforts of the Infrastructure Sector and the Regions to Achieve Economic Growth
6 October 2017
10:00—11:15

The development of infrastructure is becoming an issue of decisive importance in today’s economy. It creates opportunities for meeting consumer demands — both industrial and domestic — as fully as possible. The construction of energy, urban, telemetry, social, financial, and transport infrastructure enables people to realize their plans, spurs new business growth and development of technological solutions, and attracts investment and qualified specialists. Big data and other smart technologies are making it possible to plan infrastructure projects with greater precision, in a way which is oriented towards demand (including potential demand). A large contribution to the development of infrastructure is being made at a regional level, where there is high awareness of local needs. What factors are influencing the development of infrastructure in Russia’s regions? What infrastructure does the Russian economy need more of? What is hindering the development of international infrastructure? Do possibilities exist for cross-sectoral collaboration in constructing and modernizing infrastructure which could achieve a synergistic effect for the economy?
