Strategic sessions on the development of investment strategies for macrodistricts were held in Krasnoyarsk Region

Strategic sessions on the formation of investment strategies of the Western, Central and Northern macrodistricts of Krasnoyarsk Region have been brought to a close. The events were organized by the Ministry of Economy and Regional Development of Krasnoyarsk Region, the Center for Strategic Research (CSR) and Yenisey Siberia Development Corporation.

According to Deputy director of the Center for Regional Economics of the CSR Andrey Kireev, the main task in developing investment strategies is to organize the  interaction between representatives of regional executive and legislative authorities, local governments, regional development institutions, businesses and educational organizations in order to identify real problems of investment development of macrodistricts and the needs they have.

“A picture of the development of each territory has been formed, and a framework for the formation of investment strategies of macrodistricts has been set based on the results of the strategic sessions.  We jointly defined the image of the desired future level of development of the territories, outlined the goals and sectoral development priorities, and proposed investment projects. The most important outcome of the event was the formation of communication links between the participants during the strategic sessions. We hope that this dialogue will continue beyond the strategic sessions and will develop into sustainable communications and real investment projects that are necessary and useful both for investors themselves and for businesses and residents of macrodistricts,” Andrey Kireev noted.

The strategic sessions became a platform for exchanging opinions and troubleshooting. For example, in the course of developing business initiatives, the entrepreneurs found answers to bottlenecks in the development of their enterprises. The participants noted that such meetings are very fruitful and suggested holding them regularly.

It should be noted that the results of the expert meetings will be used in the preparation of investment strategies for the development of macrodistricts of Krasnoyarsk Region and investment proposals for their implementation.
