SHAPING A NEW ERA IN RUSSIAN INDUSTRY AND MANUFACTURING: DOMESTIC MARKET OR EXTERNAL EXPANSION?

17:15-18:30 Congress Centre, Conference Hall D4
Recent years have seen dramatic shifts in the global landscape, compelling the Russian government to re-examine its domestic economic and industrial policies and implement development programmes designed to spur domestic production. At the same time, businesses are cultivating new markets and revamping technological infrastructure to create a “new reality” for Russia’s manufacturing and export sectors. Can the combination of adverse external pressures and the corresponding introduction of import substitution policy measures drive the advancement of cutting-edge, world-class industries? Which sectors hold the most promise, and how can this be realized? What role should the government play in supporting Russia’s traditionally strong industries, and what should be left to market forces?
