Round Table
Russia 2030: Growth Poles


The economic space is nonuniform and uneven. Population and economy are increasingly concentrated in large metropolitan areas and their surrounding regions. There are several leading regions in terms of socio-economic development and competitiveness on the territory of Russia that form cores and become generators of economic growth.

One of them - the growth pole Volga-Kama, stated in the Strategy Tatarstan-2030. Today we can also speak about Great Moscow growth pole – the largest in Russia which is one of the global growth poles, as well as North-West, Ural, South-Siberian, South and Far East growth poles in Russia.

Implementation of the opportunities of strategic integration, interregional development projects, complementarity of the competitive advantages, co-branding and promotion - it is an incomplete list of factors pushing regions to cooperate in the framework of growth poles.

It is necessary to distinguish the growth poles, understand its perspectives, develop measures to promote the development and spread the growth impulses of the new economy. Actualization of regional strategies, running under 172-FL, will be more effective if the subjects of the Russian Federation determine its role in the growth poles and development corridors.
