"Go Russia:" Progress, One Year Later
Chief Economic Advisor to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev
At last week's Global Policy Forum in Yaroslavl, experts and thought leaders from around the world gathered to discuss Russia's modernization and economic development. The timing for such a meeting was auspicious; it came one year after President Medvedev shared his vision for Russia's future in an article titled, "Go Russia!" in which he outlined five strategic vectors of economic modernization; energy efficiency and new fuels; medical technologies and pharmaceuticals; nuclear power engineering; information technologies; and space and telecommunications.
As President Medvedev noted in his article, Russia will accomplish this by harmonizing the interests of the individual, society and government and by developing concrete projects and technologies that are both transferable and scalable.
Over the course of the past year we have worked to put these aspirations into action, and to date we have made meaningful progress in a number of areas. Specific examples include:
• "Energy Efficient City and District" - pilot projects implementing energy efficient programmes and technologies have been launched in several regions across the country and are being monitored and studied for best practices that can be replicated elsewhere.
All of these and many more were discussed in greater detail at Yaroslavl, particularly within the broader context of Russia's democratic modernization, where Russia can learn from the successes and failures of other nations.
As we all know, constructive changes take time, persistence, and commitment. They require new ways of thinking. They do not happen overnight, but their lasting effect can be dramatic nonetheless.
