In August 2017 Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich launched a programme to increase efficiency and productivity in Russian manufacturing. Under the programme, the state will be able to support businesses in the manufacturing sector with regard to industrial technology and production efficiency, the removal of administrative barriers, training and professional development, working in association with banks, and also digitalization/automation. The aim of the programme is to achieve a significant increase in productivity and efficiency. German businesses, many of which are mediumsized, are world leaders with regard to efficiency in the manufacturing sector and labour productivity. So these businesses have a keen interest in cooperating as suppliers of systems and technology, consultants, and partners in manufacturing and logistics. On the Russian side there is particular interest in working together with German businesses to share experience, use technology to increase productivity, upgrade industrial equipment, streamline the process in the overall production chain, and provide training, professional development, and Digitalization and Industry 4.0. New challenges for bilateral cooperation against the background of an increasingly unclear sanctions policy. How can we expand cooperation and increase efficiency and productivity? Ways of bringing Russian suppliers into global supply networks and increasing exports in the Russian economy. What are the prospects for cooperation with regard to the digital economy and innovation in manufacturing?
