Digital State: New Business Models Brought by Total Digitalization
We would like to support the idea of engaging private business <…> There are two sides of the same coin. First, competition improves quality of platform solutions that the public administration system needs. Second, private business builds more focus on clients and final results etc. within the public administration system. If we look at this problem this way, we definitely need to develop competition between public and private sectors and embed platform solutions that private business has already built in the public administration system

Increasing the Investment Appeal of the Far East
Several projects are worth mentioning, but the most significant one is the ‘Regulatory Guillotine’. The business should be directly involved. <...> Business should not be designated, but rather consolidate its position

Russia and the EAEU in the Asia Pacific: Key Integration Factors and Prospects for Strengthening Business Ties
According to ESCAP [the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific – ed.], in order for countries of the Asia Pacific to meet their sustainable development goals, there needs to be at least USD 1.5 trillion of additional investment per year. The level of investment is seriously lagging behind the level of trade in the Asia Pacific

Russia and the EAEU in the Asia Pacific: Key Integration Factors and Prospects for Strengthening Business Ties
It is worth raising the question of using national currencies in trade between countries of the EAEU and ASEAN. Amid the current trade wars and international sanctions <...> the dedollarization of our relations is a crucial factor

National Development Goals: Key Issues in the First Year of Work
The task is to incentivise business participation in national projects. The business does not ask for special benefits. The initial business request is for the stability and predictability of fiscal, tax, administrative and other burdens

A New Europe: What Is Russia to Expect?
The main objective should absolutely be removing uncertainty. And as a minimum, the best way to do this is to avoid imposing new sanctions. <...> The political will to not use sanctions as a tool of unfair competition needs to be there

A New Europe: What Is Russia to Expect?
Sanctions are not a cause for alarm in terms of their direct consequences, but because they are unpredictable: nobody knows what sanctions will be imposed tomorrow, or indeed whether they will be imposed at all. This causes an environment of uncertainty for Russian businesses working with foreign partners, and also for our foreign partners. In being in place for a sustained amount of time, this environment of uncertainty could lead to partnerships stagnating

Together, we should work towards the effectiveness of international institutions. <...> Our task, since Italy is a member of both the G20 and the G7, and Russia is a member of the G20, is to strive toward the effectiveness of these institutions, including [their independence, – Ed.] from the United States

Are Corporate Healthcare Programmes a Fashion Trend or a Basic Need?
Currently, we are working on unified standard that could be adopted as federal legislature in the nearest future. We are talking about “Health and safety management, medical care, preventive care, and wellness management system”. This RSPP standardization initiative will first of all help spread best corporate practices. Second, it will help paint a whole picture where there would not be a question whether this is a fashion trend or a basic need

Are Corporate Healthcare Programmes a Fashion Trend or a Basic Need?
Without a doubt, employer’s responsibility for employees’ health is a necessity. It is an investment that keeps giving and saves costs to train new personnel. Often times it even saves the employer from the situation when these highly qualified people are nowhere to be found

Co-Creating the Future. Business Solutions for Realizing Sustainable Development Goals
I would like to highlight digitalization and technological transformation as crucial factors of sustainable development. On the one hand, introduction of state-of-the-art technologies and innovations can take productivity to a whole new level, while it is now stagnating in many countries. On the other hand, the countries that neglect technological upgrade will lose the opportunity to maintain and raise productivity in the future

Co-Creating the Future. Business Solutions for Realizing Sustainable Development Goals
I wanted to talk about risks that cause the most concerns for doing business. They come from geopolitical tensions, cyber threats, problems with critical infrastructure, fiscal and financial crises, pricing shocks on energy markets and volatility of those markets. All of it stands in the way of economic growth

Healthy Life Expectancy: The Foundation of Social Development
Employers are not only interested in the health of their workers, but are also willing to invest in it. Nevertheless, though, it is better to encourage them with systemic measures so that this becomes a large-scale movement

Crossroads on the Silk Road
It is very important to move from some pinpoint projects to a far-reaching use of the entire set of tools. A big role here undoubtedly belongs to multilateral banking institutions, in particular, the Asian Bank for Infrastructure Investments, and many other structures. It is very important to implement the ideology of the seamless market

In our surveys and studies we’ve recorded that approximately 40% of companies consider the system of supervision and control ineffective. We understand that the issue is quite sensitive, but the situation needs to be addressed.

Digitalization - an Engine for Growth and Inclusive Development
Inequality is increasing. For example, according to experts from the World Economic Forum and McKinsey, only 29% of industrial companies polled have begun introducing the Internet of Things into production. Forty-one percent of companies are still in the pilot phase, and 30% have not even begun testing these kinds of technologies

As for various ratings indicating progress on digitalization, we are a long way behind those at the top.

Digitalization - an Engine for Growth and Inclusive Development
A lack of resources to finance sustainable infrastructure remains a serious challenge. McKinsey estimates that the global demand for infrastructure financing between 2015 and 2030 will be about USD 93 trillion. Most of this demand will be in the energy sector (USD 40 trillion); followed by transportation (USD 27 trillion); water supply and waste treatment (USD 19 trillion); and telecoms (USD 7 trillion). However, based on existing investment trends, infrastructure investment is expected to be just USD 47 trillion. Only the telecommunications sector can count on being able to fully cover demand
