Harnessing Russia’s Growth Potential
Panel Session
Congress Centre, Conference Hall D1

Standardization, certification, and quality control are some of the key government tools for ensuring the growth and competitiveness of national economies, and leadership in international markets. Is Russia ready to participate fully and actively in international certification and standardization? What must be done to ensure the active engagement of Russian companies in these processes? How should standardization and certification be applied to improve the competitiveness of Russia’s economy, industry, and exports? Can Russia establish a national infrastructure of such quality that it keeps up with other major economies in the competitiveness race?
