Since the end of 2016, the Government of the Russian Federation has launched a number of priority projects which are intended to give tangible social and economic benefits within limited managerial, human and financial resources; the tangible effects  for citizens must be manifested in the first two years of the priority projects’ implementation.

Issues for Discussion

  • How can the project management system help to overcome the limitations of economic growth in the Russian economy?
  • What is the social and economic motivation to launch the projects?
  • In what directions should new priority projects be launched, and what are they?
  • How do approved priority projects implement Russia's development strategy?
