On February 6, the round table entitled “Regional Strategies Development Experience” was held at the CSR, attended by Alexey Kudrin. The Forum brought together strategic planning experts and representatives of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, ICSER Leontief Center, RANEPA, regional administrations, and also professional consultants from various organizations.
The round table was devoted to the discussion of methodological issues of developing and coordinating strategies. The keynote address was made by the Managing Director of Leontief Centre-AV Group Consortium Aleksey Krylovskiy, who showcased the Consortium's experience in developing regional strategies and the results of analysis of other strategies developed in recent years. The speaker noted that the quality of the strategies of Russia’s federal subjects has significantly increased over the past few years, but still there are parts that raise questions. Comparing the list of indicators, recommended for use by the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, with indicators actually used in the strategies attracted much interest of the round table participants. The discussion aimed to provide expert support to the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia in adjusting relevant methodological recommendations and to provide in-depth preparation for the next Strategic Planning Forum to be held in October 2018 in St. Petersburg. In this regard, such round tables will be held regularly.
