Urbanomics Conference. PPP for the City. How Partnership and Business Encourage Growth and Development

The scale of Moscow’ economy is comparable with smaller countries (Moscow’s GRP in 2017 was approximately 250 billion USD); this by itself makes it attractive for investors. As all megacities, Moscow is facing global challenges related to the development of the essential infrastructure, the need to create more high-performance job, and modernization of production facilities. One of the more efficient methods to deal with these large-scale challenges is public-private partnerships, which are set up successfully all around the world. For a positive outcome from the public-private partnership, it is important to carefully balance the stakeholders’ interests. 

  • What kind of investment instruments do megacities and urban agglomerations use today? 
  • What are the mechanisms of public-private partnership employed in Moscow? 
  • What kind of projects are open for investment today in Moscow and other big cities?
