Ecology: How to Save the Planet in a World Without Trust?
Despite the fact that it would appear that the spotlight is on another area – specifically, technological sovereignty and a new form of import substitution – environmental issues have not been removed from the agenda. And in fact, we consider them to be inextricably linked issues, because as a rule, modern production methods comply with all ecological requirements. And as a rule, if an enterprise is modernized using cutting-edge equipment, it meets all the requirements set out by environmentalists. For our part, we will keep our finger on the pulse, and businesses are focusing on becoming environmentally friendly

Ecology: How to Save the Planet in a World Without Trust?
We have listened to businesses and are shifting certain indicators to the right. However, this does not mean that we are in principle extricating ourselves from the environmental agenda and that it is now taking a back seat. One way or another, we are adapting to today’s conditions. In terms of export-based industries, decarbonization issues will remain on the agenda regardless. Before long, sanctions will be lifted one way or another regardless. We will look for alternative markets and select friendly countries. In turn, friendly countries will enter those same European markets, and will have to contend with lower CO2 threshold requirements. And our contribution – the contribution of our suppliers – will be very tangible in this regard. It will simply be an indicator of product competitiveness

Training of Personnel with Specialized Secondary Education
We remember the times very recently when you were considered a nobody if did not have a higher education. A higher education certificate was a must. This trend is changing now, and this is a very big thing. This meets today’s requirements – that's all! And here it is very important that we scale up this work and do not lose momentum

Training of Personnel with Specialized Secondary Education
From higher education, we see that the focus is on the system of vocational education, also because the quality of this education is growing and there is an understanding that it is also possible to train specialists there

Training of Personnel with Specialized Secondary Education
The Soviet system has been recreated, which today is scaled up in the Professionality project. This is not just some kind of tribute to fashion... But this is a real necessity to prepare the right personnel for the industry

Winning in Technological Development
Today we see these vacant cells, which simply must be filled. <...> If we talk about priorities, above all we need to fully meet the needs of the fuel and energy complex, oil and gas producers, power engineering, transport engineering, pharmaceuticals, medicine, and, perhaps chemistry

Winning in Technological Development
Generally, we have been preparing for this type of situation, and the industries are ready to face these challenges. Probably no one expected it to be as big as we see it today, but nevertheless we can say that since the end of 2014 – when the law on industrial policy was passed – we have been gradually moving towards responding to such sanctions restrictions. <...> We had to take certain measures fairly quickly. But we had a basis, we had a foundation, and thanks to that we were able to start providing state support measures rapidly

Anti-Crisis Guidelines: Where Can Personnel Be Found for Import Substitution and a Technological Breakthrough?
Indeed, there is a tendency of shifting the focus to secondary vocational education. And we should pay tribute to the initiatives of the Ministry of Education, which we gladly supported. I am talking about the Professionalism programme [The Professionalism federal project launched on 1 September, 2022. It is an educational experiment of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation which aims to train qualified specialists with practical knowledge and skills to work in the real sector of the economy in a short period of time – Ed.]

How to Provide the Russian Economy with the Qualified Personnel?
The very important point of housing was raised. Considering our people’s mentality, housing – getting a flat – is the main asset a person will have in their lifetime. So, giving a young person the chance to have their own home, to get a flat, is vital. I would suggest examining the experience laid out in Federal Law 161. This specifies that state-owned land can be put into use and provided to a housing construction cooperative made up of employees. Essentially, the land is transferred free of charge, with a residential building already under construction on it

The Investment Attractiveness and Export Potential of Strategically Important Industries
Last year we made a decision that we were basically leaving 5% loans behind, and the biggest interest rate would stand at 3%. <…> In 2020, the final score in the [primary] import substitution implementation plans was, let us call it 1:0. We now have a model where plans for a three-factor approach are being shaped up, that is, with the emphasis on components, raw materials and means of production. We are now engaged in an active dialogue with the Ministry of Finance regarding a separate programme, so that up to 100% of the fund’s loans would be written off if certain covenants are fulfilled
