Developing Infrastructure for Economic Growth and Improved Living Standards
4 October 2018
10:00—11:15

In line with a presidential decree, the Government of the Russian Federation is drawing up a comprehensive plan in partnership with regional administrations to modernize and expand critical transport infrastructure. Experts have claimed that annual investments of around RUB 2 trillion are needed for infrastructure. At the same time, innovative and digital technologies are to be implemented, greatly improving business and public services. Fulfilling such ambitious objectives requires a coordination of efforts between infrastructure industries, the regions, equipment manufacturers, and the financial sector. How will fulfilling priority infrastructure development objectives affect regional policy? Which tasks will be undertaken by companies? What sources of funding for priority projects have been identified? Do Russian companies possess sufficient expertise to fulfil infrastructure development objectives, and what overseas experience and technology could prove beneficial? Which countries’ experience was drawn upon when preparing the government’s comprehensive plan?
