Russia's Financial Sector in a New Environment
We need a set of tools like this, but we can’t use it right now. Because in the light of what people have experienced with restrictions on the use of currency, to go out and say now that they have to pay for it with the value of their money – this can’t happen right now,

Russia's Financial Sector in a New Environment
Investors themselves... with these uncertain factors – the exchange rate and the key rate and the global uncertainty – will act cautiously and avoid entering into new projects. The basic thing the market needs to know now is that the risk between the state, commercial banks, and private investors will be built on a different scale. If not, we’ll be in for a very long period of cooling-off

Quality of Life as a Key Driver of Contemporary Development
Today, a qualified request comes from the Muscovites: somewhere we are ready for a dialogue, somewhere we can tolerate something, somewhere we do not like something. The city that we have now makes us all tolerate something, and forces us to become more flexible in the dialogue, because after certain inconveniences are resolved the quality is created. It is this quality that allows us to develop. <...> You can look at monocities. <...> If a team is hungry for new knowledge, if they act professionally and interact with people –  even if it is a town of 50 thousand residents – literally in a year or two people see huge changes

Investments into the Urban Environment
In Russia, there are 319 monotowns, 100 of them are in the red zone, where there is no money, there is a closed enterprise, pressure on the labour market, no comfortable urban environment, but people really want to change the life around them. Over the last six months, we achieved huge transformations. <…> Government handed out grants, but they were very small. That is why a modern urban environment is not necessarily how it is in Moscow. <…> In a town with 15,000 or 50,000 people, comfortable urban environment is very different. So, there is enough money for everyone

Integration vs. Protectionism: The Role of Development Institutions in the Creation of a Common Economic Space in Greater Eurasia
The agenda of integration and development of Russia is based on the fact that there should be a certain level of freedom, and that this level should be increased constantly. Without trade, without one person earning anything, while others get the chance to earn, there will be no prosperity. You cannot build prosperity on limitations

Business in National Development Projects: Ways to Succeed
From the major projects we are accustomed to and know how to finance, we need to [move] to projects in specific municipalities, where you can create both transport infrastructure and a modern city block. This is our job now

Integration vs. Protectionism: The Role of Development Institutions in the Creation of a Common Economic Space in Greater Eurasia
Protectionism cannot stop integration. It can weaken it a little, change the track, the pace. But it is impossible to stop integration

Integration vs. Protectionism: The Role of Development Institutions in the Creation of a Common Economic Space in Greater Eurasia
A large economic space is the basis for achieving national development goals. <…> What we are doing together is creating new, larger markets so that in Russia and in the EAEU, people can produce and sell as much as possible. This is the basis of the wealth of the ordinary citizen

National Projects: What Will Be Done in the Far East? Housing and Urban Environment
Housing and open environment of the Far East should be discussed with passion. <...> By and large in this macroregion, at least in the Primorye Territory, things can develop way more dynamically than in the rest of Russia. And the competitor of the Primorye Territory, beg your pardon, is not Moscow and the Moscow region, but California. But our mindset is completely different

The Economics of Urban Comfort
A city needs a contemporary concept and development plan, along with new residential neighbourhoods and public spaces. <…> A new city block, a new start need more than large infrastructure projects. The heart and quality of this life can only be obtained through small, medium-sized and micro enterprises providing this comfort

The Economics of Urban Comfort
Why are we talking about cities? 75% of the population lives in cities. Exploring or pursuing this goal we still keep in mind small Russian communities. Nevertheless, developing places where 75% of the population lives, all the rest will benefit as well
