The Russia Economic Outlook Russia's gross domestic product grew by 1.5% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2018, and the IMF is projecting a steady 1.8% expansion for 2019. With this solid recovery underway, what economic restructuring and investment development policies are needed to unlock further accelerated growth? What is the prognosis for energy exports and how might price fluctuations impact overall economic performance? How have import substitution policies affected the outlook and what further steps are needed to revitalise industrial productivity? And finally how has Russia's recent focus on cultivating buoyant markets in Asia and the Middle East fared and what more should be done to mitigate the dampening effect of Western sanctions?

Call for Collaboration: Private Sector vs Cybercrime International Cybersecurity Congress Working discussion Global digital transformation brings a great deal of opportunity for innovation and prosperity both to the business community and to organized cybercriminal groups. Being the first to adapt to new technology, they continuously advance their attacks, costing trillions in losses to the global community. This is according to just the official statistics – in reality less than 20% of incidents are reported, as most companies do not reveal this information in fear of losing their clients. Lack of a trusted environment and solutions for uninterrupted information sharing hinders global cooperation, whilst joint response from the private sector could prevent a great number of crimes. In this inclusive workshop we are going to define current problems of international collaboration, discuss the existing initiatives and identify key areas for developing synergies between global organizations.

Russia: DNA of the New Entrepreneur Despite the rapidly changing economic situation, Russia is home to a new generation of entrepreneurs who have already achieved significant success.
This new generation of entrepreneurs is primarily characterized by their understanding of the importance of strategic change, their steady presence at the forefront of technological innovation, and their willingness to try new things. Operating in one country or one sector is no longer an option for modern businesses.
How do these new role models, who have already become successful in Russia, perceive this new reality? Can belief in one’s own ability and a sense of responsibility change not just a business, but the economy as well? How have market demands changed for entrepreneurs? Should entrepreneurs be considered an example of broad-minded individuals? How important are creativity and innovation in entrepreneurial success? What does this new generation of entrepreneurs need from society and what can they offer themselves?

Russia – One Step Ahead As new technology takes hold around the world, changing the way we live, work and relate to each other, the pace of innovation differs from country to country. Over the last decade, sectors such as e-commerce, mobile telephony and FinTech in Russia have evolved at least on a par with developed countries – if not faster. Can Russia leapfrog developed markets in terms of technological innovation? What are the sectors best positioned to lead the advance? Can sanctions hold back the pace of further technological development in Russia or, on the contrary, give additional stimulus?
