Far East Concession Programme: First Results and Future Prospects
The Far East Concession is not yet a factory. It’s more like a boutique which manually addresses a range of issues. But we are on the way towards turning it into a factory, to making it a programme-based solution

The Development of Infrastructure in Large Cities and Urban Innovation: Transforming Territories
When we consider infrastructure initiatives, we know that there could be more projects if they were prepared faster and better. Many developers, businesses, and infrastructure companies face difficulties with the fact that there is no normal access to information if a project is regional or municipal. And sometimes they spend a huge amount of time trying to get the raw data for calculations. Today, we see a trend towards digitization of processes, especially databases, in certain regions and municipalities

Quality Infrastructure Projects: How Are Investor Attitudes Changing?
Regardless of the fact that we have crisis events in the global economy due to the pandemic, we see that many countries are now actively developing infrastructure, actively investing in infrastructure, and launching all kinds of programmes that stimulate the development of public infrastructure. We see that recently there has been a trend (and it’s gaining steam) [...] towards a ‘green economy’, towards sustainable development, and towards smart investments. The main thing now is not just to attract financing for a particular infrastructure project and get a return. New standards and quality standards are now emerging. Standards that improve people’s quality of life. We are seeing new criteria, environmental criteria, and social criteria. At present, we are actually standing on the threshold of how to develop a methodology that is understandable for everyone in order to attract high-quality investments to high-quality infrastructure

National infrastructure priorities for 2024: defining them quickly, implementing them effectively
A number of regions are no longer motivated to attract private investment to arrange concession agreements. Governors now use the following logic: we will use our lobbying resources, address the federal government and one more time ask for money for infrastructure projects that we will use our lobby to turn into national ones

Smart Investments for Smart Infrastructure
For us smart investments mean a programme based approach to budget investments. <...>Together with regions, we plan to create infrastructure programmes, infrastructure maps, PPP programmes, which determine the projects needed in the region. <...> In the coming year we will build regional and federal plans and we will work to ensure that new methods of planning appear
