The Development Path for Petrochemicals in the East: Projects, Support Measures, Drivers of Growth
I would like to draw the attention of potential and existing investors to two important mechanisms being introduced. First of all, these are corporate programmes, Government Decree No. 195, opportunity to access discounted credit tools with a subsidized interest rate for the companies that are ready to make a technology-savvy competitive and export-oriented product. This mechanism is already effective, and now the projects are going through the first round of selection for it. The second mechanism is SPIC 2.0. All decisions about it have been made. Let me remind you that the main requirement is the following: it is either a deed of transfer or creation of a new technology or making a high-tech product. In this case, we can be eligible for the measures stated: a possibility of zeroing profit tax or property tax or transport tax. While unlike SPIC 1.0, the special investment contract must be approved and signed by four parties: the ministry, the region, the municipality and the investor

We have two roadmaps to develop the sector. One of these, which we are already working on, involves replacing imports, encompassing 200 projects and around RUB 1 trillion in investment. In addition, we are being directed more to the international market in order to increase non-commodity exports. As part of a national project, our ministry has been tasked with increasing revenue from the chemical industry from 17 billion to 37 billion

The process of creating new and modernising existing productions remains ongoing. In 2018, 20 investment projects were launched, the total amount of investments adding up to 42 billion roubles.

The consumption of chemical products per capita in this country is twice as low as it is abroad, so we have a long way to go. I am sure, however, that it will not have any impact on our health. Increased use of chemical products will help us achieve significant results in other areas of Russian industry

We are doing quite well at large-tonnage polymers; however, we need more raw materials for low-tonnage chemical products. <…> They are required for developing new products with high added value, which would be in demand inside the country and would be exported

The reverse excise tax is definitely important for enterprises, because large amounts have been invested. However, the reverse excise tax is not helpful from the price perspective, it will be the global price anyway. On the other hand, more will be produced, but all products may go abroad where it will be willingly bought

Circular Economy: The Russian Model and Foreign Experience
We have a pyramid of priorities regarding what to do with waste. Reduced consumption of raw materials takes the first place. The second place goes to reduced waste generation. Number three is recycling, and in some place we’ll may be able to create secondary resource involved in the turnover. Then it’s incineration as a type of disposal. The measure of last resort is a landfill

Made in Russia: National and Regional Branding as Tools for Economic Development and Promoting Russia around the World
How do we promote the Made in Russia brand? Both the Roscongress Foundation and the Russian Export Center are focused on doing so. Together with Russia Today, they are showcasing the Made in Russia brand at airports in the run-up to the World Cup. This is the right thing to do – we need to take advantage of such important events. There will be lots of tourists, who will get to see all this and buy souvenirs. We’ve accomplished a great deal of work, especially over the last two years. We have also seen the establishment of the Russian Quality System brand. Three and a half thousand items have undergone the inspection procedure, and a great many of them which comply with superior standards were issued with its mark of quality. Goods with this label show an increase in sales of 30–35%. Thirty million Russians trust the information provided by the Russian Quality System. <…> Until we have trust in our products and start buying them, nobody will purchase them abroad
