The Global Economy in Search of a Balance
Pavilion H, press centre, signing ceremony hall H2

Russia's successful integration into the global economy is possible only through its participation in global production chains, which in turn inevitably requires a systematic approach to improving the effectiveness and quality of labour. The growth of managerial and technological expertise, the improvement of project finance mechanisms, a reduction in administrative barriers, etc. could become the main areas of focus in terms of increasing labour productivity in countries with developing economies. In order to achieve national goals in the sphere of labour productivity, it is vital to attract the best international experience and create a strong network of partnerships in order to amass and replicate the best international practices. How can international experience be used to boost the productivity of Russian companies in a globalizing world economy?
