Business in National Development Projects: Ways to Succeed

07 Jun, 12:00–13:15
The Russian Economy: Achieving National Development Goals
Congress Centre, conference hall D3
In partnership with VTB Bank

In the face of growing geopolitical tensions and the erosion of established rules-based trade and investment mechanisms, national development strategies that focus on domestic growth are becoming increasingly important. Whatever the scale and objectives, such strategies must respond to major universal challenges, such as rapid urbanization, digital transformation and sustainable development. The success of strategies in removing infrastructure constraints, creating conditions for green growth and improving people’s lives is largely determined by the ability to attract private capital and expertise. What tools can business use to participate in national projects? What are the best practices for implementing state development projects? Will the implementation of development strategies in individual countries become a driving force of national economies and a factor that supports global growth?
