Assessing the Business Environment, Investment Climate, and Investment Potential of the Constituent Entities of the Russian Federation
We’re in a difficult situation now, [...] but what if we look at the situation differently and set an ambitious goal - like import substitution or some technological breakthrough. The regions are ready to participate, and we also want to be part of a big strategy that will allow for breakthroughs in very important areas, logistical projects

Assessing the Business Environment, Investment Climate, and Investment Potential of the Constituent Entities of the Russian Federation
The tasks that await us are shared tasks. [...] We’ve talked about control and oversight. [...] We can see that when we digitise processes, make them transparent, understandable, remove carryover, [...] then [the result is – Ed.] other speeds and a different atmosphere

Life without Audits: A Reality or an Illusion?
It is important that none of this gets in the way of business aimed at competitiveness, efficiency and, as a bench mark, company profitability and development potential. Our task, all the services we offer, <…> is to transfer to convenient collaboration ‘digitally’. This will make it possible to avoid contact with a controller. <…> For instance, the ‘Moscow Area Construction’ app, which provides full information. We must take a look at and introduce such means and services

Life without Audits: A Reality or an Illusion?
The regulatory framework is out of date, needs cleaning up, with absurd functions being removed, and control itself will then gain a totally different content

Partnership and knowledge-sharing: new sources to drive development
We have realized that without digital technology, without simplifying all procedures, we will be outsiders in a huge region, both in economics and in politics. Digital economy is a phenomenon of the time, and you cannot refuse it. If you want to move forward, if you want to be a leader, to be successful, you must digitalize all processes. If you stand against it, you are a fool

The Transformation of Public and Private Sectors in the New Economy
We passed all the secondary functions to the market, for instance, we have a big contract for photo and video recording. The state has not spent a penny to register any traffic violations that occur in the region. A private entrepreneur bought these cameras, he services them, and receives 233 rubles from each check that is already in the budget. We let the business go where it will make processes easier and better than the municipal or regional authorities

The Transformation of Public and Private Sectors in the New Economy
In 10 cases out of 10 the excessive presence of an official is a barrier. The digital economy excludes officials from the equation. Today, the MFC and everything related to electronic applications, do not understand that a businessperson arrives to an official and a personally talks to them. The Moscow region has a comprehensive list of documents any applicant needs, which, basically excludes any possibility of a failure. There are 200 services like this in the country, and 80 of them we have digitized in the region. The most that businessperson would need, or any person for that matter, is to come to the MFC and collect the results

New Investment Policy Mechanisms: Engines of Growth
Proactive global agricultural policy. All support measures should be linked to those enterprises that really develop outwardly into global markets. <…> Last year our export grew by more than 20% and we are keeping up the pace in the first quarter of this year. We have never exported so much machinery outside the CIS

We are the only region that created the Centre for Construction Promotion. The construction centre will accompany the entrepreneurs all the way along the project life. Additionally, all procedures related to obtaining permits, connecting to technical conditions, obtaining the right to water, gas, sewerage, have been automated. <...> We have also made the first portal in the country to monitor the execution of contracts
