INFLATION TARGETING IN RUSSIA: SUSTAINABILITY TEST
Expert Discussion

In the period from 2015 to H2 2018, the Bank of Russia had consistently been reducing the key rate in the face of slowing inflation expectations and the inflation, which for a long time remained consistently below the target level of 4%. In addition to the moderately tight monetary policy, this was facilitated by a number of factors: from low growth in consumer demand to a favorable situation on the world market of agricultural products. However, this year, not only the new geopolitical risks appeared but also capital outflow from all developing countries increased as the United States FED was increasing the rates. This has led to instability in the Russian financial market, the weakening of ruble and a boosting pressure on prices and inflation expectations, which forced the Bank of Russia move to raising the key rate. These trends cause the relevance of the discussion of the prospects for monetary policy of the Central Bank of Russia, the scale of possible deviations of inflation from the target level, as well as the actions of the Bank of Russia in the foreign exchange market.

Issues for Discussion:

  • Possible deviation of actual inflation rates from target level
  • Financial stability as the objective of monetary authorities
  • Neutral interest rate level in the Russian Federation and prospects of achieving it
  • External conditions of the monetary policy of the Bank of Russia, long-term strategy of the monetary policy of the Bank of Russia

INSTITUTIONAL RESTRUCTURING OF AGRICULTURE COMPLETED: WHERE TO GO NEXT?
Expert Discussion

Russian agriculture has undergone significant institutional changes: denationalization, de-collectivization, introduction of holdings, agro-industrial integration, concentration of land and capital. They were the drivers of growth and provided the growth of production volumes, export and efficiency. For centuries, Russia has lived in hunger or lack of food production, but now it is learning to live with its surplus. Relevant in this regard is the question: should the development paradigm be changed? How the current structure meets the requirement of sustainability with its triangle (economy, ecology and social issues of rural areas)?

Issues for Discussion:

  • Why the theory is at odds with practice in Russia: the growth points in individual companies providing a sharp increase in production have not become the points of development of the territory?
  • Why, in the face of growth of the added value in agriculture, the proportion of the population living below the poverty line is shifting to rural areas?
  • Is a different successful placement of production facilities possible: commensurate with the nature’s ability to recycle waste and commensurate with the established settlement of rural residents?
  • Why the concentration of public support, production and new technologies on individual enterprises limits the prospects for agriculture?
  • How food affordability is achieved in countries that have no agricultural holdings similar to Russian ones?

INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUSINESS
Expert Discussion

The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) concept emerged in the second half of the 20th century in the USA. In many aspects, the basis for the concept was its business ethic being characteristic of Western countries.

As researches show, the Corporate Social Responsibility concept is differently interpreted and perceived in various cultures.In Russia, as in many other Eastern and Central European countries, the Corporate Social Responsibility concept is regarded by business representatives with mixed feelings. At that, in business schools the amount of academic hours allocated to the relevant courses is steadily growing.

However, to what extent the Corporate Social Responsibility concept is valid in the cultural context of the countries of the former Socialist camp is still undecided. In addition, scandals of the last few years allow you to bring up the question in the more straightforward manner, i.e. does the business require socially responsible managers?

WHY IS IT BENEFICIAL FOR THE BUSINESS TO BE RESPONSIBLE?
Expert Discussion

Standards for the responsible conduct of business (RCB) are the standards of transparent activities of companies implemented through the implementation of due diligence in 11 areas (taxes, competition, environment, etc.) to minimize risks of companies. Today, these standards have a significant impact not only on the multinationals, but also on SMEs and companies operating on the domestic market in various countries. This impact is felt due to the fact that, in the past few years, the attention of institutional investors and entrepreneurs to RCB has significantly increased. Nowadays most developed countries establish specific requirements to companies and counterparties.

The Russian authorities need to assist Russian companies in adopting RCB standards basing on the experience of developed countries: to formulate the methodology of RCB standards integration and stimulate their adoption. This will allow to increase the enterprises’ effectiveness, open export possibilities for SMEs and facilitate foreign capital raising in Russia.

Issues for Discussion:

  • Responsible conduct of business as the international trend
  • The OECD management for multinational enterprises: benefits and risks
  • The influence of standards of RCB on doing business in specific sectors: textiles, agriculture, mining sector, financial markets

CONTROL AND SUPERVISORY ACTIVITIES OF THE STATE: ISSUES OF REASONABILITY, PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY
Expert Discussion

In the modern world, which involves the increasingly active participation of nationals and enterprises in the development, monitoring and evaluation of the public policy implementation, it is necessary to create effective systems for recording the positions of all beneficiaries at the stage of law enforcement practice, including in assessing the effectiveness and efficiency of control and supervision activities. Taking into account the views of all beneficiaries, including nationals, is also significant because, as a rule, the position of nationals in relation to the reform of control and supervisory activities is less organized and obvious, and often is opposite to the position of the business, traditionally being the more organized stakeholder in reforming public control (supervision), able to effectively protect their interests. The central question of the round table: To what extent the citizens’ assessments of the impact of control and supervision activities of the state are taken into consideration during its formation, improvement and reforming, and how they should be taken into consideration?

Issues for Discussion:

  • Evaluation of the effectiveness of the state control and supervision activities: practice and prospects
  • Opportunities for improving methodological approaches to assessing the effectiveness of state control and supervisory activities, its improvement and reforms
  • Cases assessing the performance of the control and supervisory activities of the state from the position of citizens as ultimate beneficiaries

COMPETITION AND COMPETITION POLICY IN THE CONTEXT OF DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
Expert Discussion

Digital transformation involves not only emergence of new types of business, but also a radical change in traditional areas. Both are closely connected with new development opportunities, as well as with restrictions on competition and, accordingly, challenges for competition policy. In this regard, antitrust authorities and experts from different countries are actively discussing how the available tools and methods of antitrust policy allow them to cope with new challenges. Is a substantial adjustment of established approaches required (if yes, based on which principles and theories) or threats arising from the digitalization only seem to be something new, but in fact they can be successfully resisted with the help of traditional antitrust tools?

HOW TO PAINLESSLY CANCEL FOREIGN EXCHANGE REGULATION?

  • The requirement of repatriation as a restriction for business;
  • The effectiveness of restrictions on foreign accounts for currency residents;

  • The macroeconomic objectives of exchange controls;
  • The adjustment of the notion of currency residency;
  • The improvement of tax administration tools;

  • Is the third party intervention (court, antimonopoly authority) appropriate in the relationship between the monopolist and monopsonist in a bilateral monopoly market? 
  • If antimonopoly authority is relatively more efficient in solving the problem of bilateral monopoly, in which model it makes it better?
  • What are the approaches to analyzing a bilateral monopoly in terms of “technology”?
  • How antimonopoly authority can and should affect the balance of the negotiating strength of market participants that come to it in an attempt to redistribute the expected profits and costs from the negotiations?

MUNICIPAL CONTROL AS A TOOL FOR TERRITORIAL DEVELOPMENT
Expert Discussion

Control and supervisory activities have always been considered as one of the barriers to business development. With proper organization, municipal control can be an effective tool for the development of the territory, attracting investment.

In February 2018, a draft of the conceptual new federal law regulating control and supervisory activities was adopted in the first reading. Currently, 29 types of control and supervisory activities have already been shifted into a risk-oriented approach, based on a fundamentally different approach the “stick model” of the work is becoming a thing of the past; an indicator of quality control activity is the absence of harm or damage. This, in particular, means changing the forms and mechanisms of work - much more attention should be paid to explanatory activities, warning and preventive control.

If the issues of improving public control are more or less clear at both the theoretical and enforcement levels, everything is much more complicated with municipal control. There were practically no serious discussions about the concept of municipal control in Russia. The needs of municipalities, their resource capabilities vary greatly. It is necessary to develop an optimal and effective model for the implementation of municipal control, taking into account the capabilities of different territories.

Issues for Discussion:

  • What is municipal control and is it needed?
  • What types of municipal control are the most effective and in demand?
  • How can we delimit the municipal control from state or public by related activities?
  • What is the object of municipal control - verification of compliance with municipal rules and regulations or requirements contained in laws?
  • What could be the ideal model of municipal control?

TENDENCIES OF CORPORATE LAW DEVELOPMENT: PENDING DIALOGUE
Expert Discussion

Ensuring high and sustainable economic growth in Russia is largely due to the creation of an effective system of corporate legislation. The main vector of development of corporate legislation has recently been based on the creation of conditions for the promotion of Russia in the World Bank's Doing Business rating, which resulted in the promotion of Russia in terms of “protecting minority shareholders” from the 100th to the 51st place. However, ensuring steady increase in the capitalization of companies and growth of investments (including return of capital to Russia) under the current sanctions restrictions requires revision of the reform course in the area of corporate law.

Issues for Discussion:

  • On the strategy of corporate law development: reforms again?
  • Fair practice in corporate law: how to establish it?
  • New criteria for the delimitation of legal entities: an objective necessity or a tribute to fashion?
  • Deadlocks in non-public corporations: possible options for the development of legislation and judicial practice
  • Blockchain technologies and their effect on share registers: will it be used?
  • Electronic (virtual) legal entities: is corporate law applicable?
  • E-share: why is it needed?
