Regions of Russia – Competition or Partnership?


The potential to accelerate economic growth in Russia largely depends on unlocking the potential of Russian regions. However, most investment projects in the regions have a local character. The share of trade and economic relations between the regions in the gross domestic product is insignificant. There are very few examples of successful implementation of interregional projects with close cooperation ties established. The partnership of the regions doesn’t have an institutional framework and direct federal support. At the same time, without comprehensive efforts to boost interregional cooperation, it is impossible to start a spatial cooperation within the Russia’s economy.
Issues to be discussed:
- examples of successful interregional projects – what is the reason for their success?
- factors and risks that negatively affect interregional cooperation in Russia – how to influence them?
- forms of regional cooperation and mechanisms for supporting joint projects – how to make cooperation effective and mutually beneficial?
