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 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.

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?

The creation of social infrastructure is becoming an area of interest to entrepreneurs. Today, the practice of transferring the management of social infrastructure facilities to non-governmental organizations is gaining traction. A network of commercial healthcare facilities, schools, and kindergartens is developing within the country. How are successful businesses created in the social services sector, and is this a profitable area? What PPP tools are available at the regional level for the development of social infrastructure? How can social infrastructure be developed given the increasing demand for quality social services: should we rely on paid services or increase the role of the state?
