Gaidar Forum 2018 will take place from January 16 to 18

The next Gaidar Forum will take place from January 16 to 18 at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA).

The Gaidar Forum is an annual event in Moscow hosted by RANEPA, which brings together the world economy stars, Nobel Prize winners, best professors from the world’s leading universities (Harvard, Stanford, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, etc.), and representatives of the Russian and foreign political elite.

The Forum convenes everyone whose advanced achievements in economics make a difference for the world order and influence the socio-economic development of regions and countries. The Russian media have long dubbed it the ‘Russian Davos,’ referring to the status of its participants and experts who are included in the world's top economic conferences.

For foreign visitors, the Gaidar Forum is an important source of information on the main trends in Russia's socio-economic and political development, and the barometer of its business environment and investment climate. For domestic experts, the Gaidar Forum is a platform for discussing the prospects for Russia's further economic growth and integration into the global economy.

The Forum was established in 2010; the discussions focus on the most acute problems of the day. Particular importance is attached to Russia’s position and strategic role in the world.

The Gaidar Forum was recognized as the business event of the year and won The Moscow Times Award in 2013. It is one of the most quoted economic conferences in Russia. The Financial Times included the forum in the top 5 world business events.

The organizers of the forum include the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA), the Gaidar Institute for Economic Policy (Gaidar Institute) and the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia (AIRR).

Date: January 16-18, 2018
