The Russian President’s address to the Federal Assembly in 2017 set the goal of launching a comprehensive programme to develop a digital economy. Are labour market institutions consistent with this challenge? The practice of teleworking is widespread among IT specialists. Experts estimate that there may be 3–5 million such workers in Russia. As the digital economy expands, their numbers will only grow. How relevant to the image of a dynamic and modern industry are such attributes of labour relations as employment histories kept by employers, paper employment contracts sent to employees by post, and boxes containing copies of HR documents that are trawled through by labour inspectorates during inspections? Unless changes to labour market regulation are introduced, the development of a digital economy will be held back by rising administrative costs for employees and employers alike, as well as higher levels of informal employment. How can we overcome the constraints of economic growth and find a compromise between protecting workers’ rights and developing an economy for the digital era? Will there be demand for additional electronic employment services that can be delivered through the ‘Work in Russia’ portal?

The digital economy is developing rapidly throughout the world, and is becoming an important factor in increasing a country’s competitiveness. In his address to the Russian Federal Assembly, President Vladimir Putin emphasized the key role played by digital technology in innovative national development, and proposed that the country “launch a large-scale, systemic economic development programme for the next generation of technology.”
In order to implement this objective effectively, it is essential to take full account of both the opportunities afforded by technological progress and the inherent potential risks. In the new digital economy, growth is determined by the speed of technological development, but can only be secured by people. In this context, it is important to devote special attention to creating an environment for people, on the success or failure of whom the evolution of technology will depend. Staff training, the quality of healthcare, education, food consumption, access to the Internet – these and a number of other social aspects of the investment climate will play an ever greater role in the immediate future.

Most experts agree that increasing labour productivity is one of the major potential sources of growth and increased national competitiveness for Russia, but it is not currently rising quickly enough to achieve stated economic development objectives. This gap becomes particularly clear in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution that is being widely discussed across the world.
How effective are current government measures and programmes for improving productivity? What are the main constraints limiting its growth? What additional measures should be taken by the government to encourage the introduction of new production technologies? How do we avoid increasing unemployment as a result of improving labour productivity? Will Russia be able to make a qualitative leap in this area in the near term in order to keep up with global trends?

In recent years, Russia has achieved a breakthrough in the development of sporting infrastructure. State investment programmes made this growth in the fitness and sports industry possible, but the transition from state funding to a public–private partnership model is the new objective and challenge facing the sporting industry, and opening up enormous potential for its development. Current issues include the efficient use of facilities and improving the investment appeal of sporting infrastructure, particularly in the regions. What examples exist of successful implementation of public–private partnership to build and operate sporting facilities? How possible would it be to replicate these projects? Is there a difference between private and state-owned sporting facilities in terms of efficiency of use? How can the concept of sports centres be expanded during the design phase, and how can they be made more appealing to the population? How can sporting facilities fill their schedules with commercial content designed to ensure their long-term, efficient operation?

What needs to be done to maintain this trend? How are priority projects in healthcare set to be implemented? How are employers looking out for the health of their workers, and what can be done to protect the health of Russia’s children?

Given the current economic situation that has arisen due to the global economic crisis, the issue of improving access to energy infrastructure has become increasingly important both for business and for the nation as a whole. Over the past three years, thanks to ongoing work to improve the regulatory framework and to implement a road map to expand access to the country’s energy infrastructure, Russia has been able to move up the rankings in the World Bank’s Doing Business index, climbing 135 positions in the Getting Electricity indicator. The ease of doing business in Russia was assessed by aggregating the results for two of the country’s cities: Moscow and St. Petersburg. How can the experience of Russia’s two largest cities be turned into a new standard for the entire country? Will electricity distribution companies be able to keep up the pace set by the leaders under current circumstances? What role do federal and regional regulatory agencies, as well as local government agencies, play in the implementation of new accessibility standards for energy infrastructure? What are the prospects for a similar programme that has been launched to facilitate connections to gas distribution networks? How do consumers rate what companies have done?

In 2016, a comprehensive set of new conditions were introduced for investing and doing business in Russia’s Far East: advanced special economic zones (ASEZs), Vladivostok Free Port, targeted infrastructure support, and concessional financing for projects (up to 5% per annum in roubles).
The application of new tax and administrative regulations is already enabling Russia’s Far East to compete freely with leading economies in the Asia-Pacific region and with other regions of Russia for investment resources. Russia’s Far East can offer projects with a return on investment surpassing the market average, as well as access to natural resources and a qualified workforce.
The first results are already in: following the adoption of the new development tools in 2016, 24 new enterprises were launched; in 2017 the figure will be 75, with a total of 280 in the coming three years. To what extent are new development tools required, and what influence do they have on the investment market? What are the Russian Far East’s competitive advantages in comparison with Asia-Pacific countries and other regions of Russia? What impact are the Free Port and ASEZ schemes having on projects? How does accessible financial support for projects in Russia’s Far East work in practice?

The most important and complex problems of socioeconomic development can only be solved through close cooperation between society and the state. Russia is actively addressing topical issues related to infrastructure development in municipalities, and local communities have been brought in to participate. However, there are still very few examples of developed systemic mechanisms that would allow society to participate in tackling strategic development problems. Which important regional development issues can society help to solve, and how should social dialogue with the state be organized? Are there examples of effective cooperation between representatives of society and business and the state in Russia?

The global economic crisis has had a serious impact on the role of traditional investors in infrastructure projects. On the one hand, governments have problems financing infrastructure due to constrained public budgets, and on the other banks are not currently willing to provide long-term financing at affordable rates. This has led to an active search for other ways of implementing these projects. What are the most effective funding mechanisms available today? What are the main challenges that private investors encounter when financing infrastructure projects? How can we create an environment in which it is possible to reduce risk? How do public–private partnerships (PPP), concession agreements, infrastructure bonds, and other instruments work?

A balanced budget system is one of the key elements in the implementation of a regional policy where the primary goal is to minimize the differences in regional socioeconomic development across Russia. Improving budgetary relationships between different levels of government is a prerequisite for ensuring a balance in public administration at the federal and regional levels. How can the organization of the interrelationships between the national and regional budgets be improved? How can the quality of the budget process and financial management of the regions be improved? What needs to be done to transition to a policy that achieves real alignment of budgets? What is more effective: imposing tough budget constraints or easing administrative regulations and expanding the powers of the regions?

The Russian Government has designated a project entitled ‘Small Business and Supporting Individual Entrepreneurial Initiatives’ as a priority for the country’s strategic development. According to experts, a total of between 20 and 30 million Russians are unofficially self-employed; that is, they conduct business activity but do not pay taxes and do not register with the authorities. How can these people be brought out of the shadows? What incentives is the state prepared to offer the self-employed to encourage them to legally register their businesses? The self-employed are certainly aware of the state’s desire to shed light on a significant sector of the economy (which is continuing to grow amid a worsening labour market), and along with that, its desire to recoup lost tax and pension contributions. However, first and foremost, the goal of these measures must be to support the self-employed; it is essential to explain the advantages of conducting business legally and openly. Indeed, the state should seek to assist and develop an institution of ‘household businesses’ in Russia. Why do small business owners prefer to remain in the shadows? Are insufficient knowledge and expertise a justification, or an excuse for not legally registering a business?

The quality and accessibility of human capital have become a mission-critical factor for investment and economic activity. Education, at both the primary and secondary levels, is the foundation for quality human capital. Yet governments in some regions often treat this area as a costly expense, diverting resources from other important tasks. The education system is not asked to make a meaningful contribution to regional development. Some regions, however, hold a vision of the future where human capital plays a key role. These regions are striving to ensure that their populations are technologically literate, developing specialized education, integrating extracurricular and core education into secondary schools, involving secondary students in social projects, and working out how to retain talent within their regions.

Today, project management is a critical step in creating a management culture not only in business, but in government too. Since the end of 2016, the Russian Government has launched a number of priority projects, which are designed to provide tangible social and economic benefits for the majority of citizens in an environment where administrative, human, and financial resources are limited. The implementation of these projects requires transparent management, efficiency, sound decision-making, and high-quality planning, which can all be guaranteed by applying project management principles.
How can priority projects be incorporated into the strategic development agenda? What experience can the regions offer in developing strategic plans and implementing them in practice? How can unviable strategies be avoided? How will the project management and public administration system evolve in the future?

Clearly, for any modern city to enjoy sustainable growth and compete on the global stage, an innovative and creative sector is a prerequisite. A creative economy emerges following a post-industrial shift marking the transition from an economy producing goods to one producing information and knowledge.
Today, creative industries are leading the way when it comes to international trade. Statistically, it is a sector that displays impressive growth throughout the world, even at a time of economic crisis. In addition to unlocking a city’s economic potential, creative industries also facilitate growth in human capital. In turn, once the number of creative people with unique talents and skills reaches critical mass, an impetus is created that continues to feed economic and cultural progress. A pilot version of a creative capital index has been developed. This will reveal the features of the creative and innovative sector and the specific aspects of the institutional environment that influence the speed at which post-industrial economies emerge in the most dynamic regions of Russia. What impact does creative capital have on the development of a region’s culture, economy, and urban planning? What role will the innovative and creative sector play in the economy over the coming years? How will the growth of creative industries impact a city’s attractiveness to investors? How can creative companies based in the Russian regions become successful global players?

One of the key elements of the strategic planning system established by Federal Law No. 172-FZ is the Strategy for the Spatial Development of the Russian Federation – a fundamentally new document on management and planning practices in Russia which combines both strategic and regional planning approaches. The strategy defines the priorities, aims, and objectives for securing comprehensive development in Russia’s regions. It focuses on supporting a sustainable housing system throughout the country and overcoming infrastructural barriers restricting socioeconomic development. The first stage of developing the strategy was its concept: a document identifying the main approaches for the new spatial development of Russia. What possible scenarios will arise from further spatial development, and what are the long-term effects of these scenarios? How can balanced spatial development be ensured? Are there any substantial challenges related to a national housing system? How can an organization working in this field influence the quality of investments?

Advanced special economic zones (ASEZs) are being created to establish favourable conditions for attracting investment and developing comfortable living conditions for local populations. Tools that are used to achieve a balance in regional development can also be used to address a wide range of issues related to economic diversification. The incentives and benefits that are offered by these development tools are aimed at compensating businesses for the costs of investing in regions with low investment attractiveness. What initial outcomes have been achieved by resident companies that have established themselves in the ASEZs? What are the restrictions on the use of these mechanisms in Russia? Are the current incentives sufficient to attract investment to the regions?

One of the key barriers hindering the export growth of SMEs is a lack of financial resources. To minimize the risks associated with entering foreign markets, it is essential to support not just SMEs but also regional banks which offer assistance for export projects. Why are SME exports needed, and are they advantageous for market participants? How can risks be reduced for banks and the volume of regional exports increased? What difficulties do regional banks encounter in providing services to smaller exporters, and how can existing financial instruments be used effectively to attract finance for the export projects of small and medium-sized businesses?

When deciding on whether to launch a project, investors analyse many factors that will influence its financial performance. The choice of jurisdiction plays a crucial role for large investment projects. Decision-makers have to account for all possible incentives and inherent difficulties. In order to overcome current challenges, the Eurasian integration initiative must develop a common competitive proposition for investors. Is competition between jurisdictions a good thing or a bad thing? Does the Eurasian Union’s existing legal framework meet the requirements of investors? Will the implementation of joint large-scale projects help to establish common rules and make it easier to attract capital?

New Regional Policy: Opportunities for Development Industry Towns: New Approaches to Development The development of single-industry municipalities has been identified as one of the main strategic directions for the Russian Federation until 2025...
The development of single-industry municipalities has been identified as one of the main strategic directions for the Russian Federation until 2025 and consequently, the Russian Government is working to implement a priority programme focused on the integrated development of single-industry towns. The goal is to ameliorate the acute socioeconomic situation plaguing single-industry towns, caused by the layoff of workers by the major enterprises which dominate the towns, limited infrastructure, and the low investment attractiveness of these areas. How can we stimulate the creation of new jobs that are not related to the activities of the former core enterprises of these cities? What factors are hampering an increase in the investment attractiveness of these single-industry towns? What state support tools are the most effective for supporting single-industry towns? Is the economic structure of these single-industry towns changing together with the changing economic situation?

In recent years, the strategy for successful development pursued by the national economic systems of the leading countries has been closely linked to superiority in research and development, the emergence of new knowledge, and the creation of innovative mass-market products. We are increasingly hearing that innovation is an absolute priority when determining a growth strategy. Historically, Russia has been one of the world’s scientific powerhouses: Russian science and engineering have made significant contributions to the sum of humanity’s body of knowledge and technology. Russia has established a network of innovative regions that are able to quickly acquire knowledge and create innovative products. How can the innovation life cycle be properly supported, and how can the outcomes of scientific research be used to advance regional socioeconomic development? What should the long-term regional scientific and technological development strategy look like, and who should lead it? How should cooperation between centres of new scientific knowledge and innovative regions be organized?
