The Russian Economy: New Objectives and Horizons

Existing supply chains have been disrupted due to the pressure that Russia is facing from global sanctions. Bans on aircraft flying over Russian territory and the calling of Russian ships at foreign ports as well as restrictions on rail traffic have all interrupted the normal business processes. On the other hand, the withdrawal of foreign companies – manufacturers of aircraft and components for trains and trucks – from the Russian market should give a boost to the development of these industries domestically. What needs to be done to create new logistics corridors? What support measures do domestic equipment manufacturers need today? What needs to be done to ensure that sea and rail transportation infrastructure meets the needs of Russian industrial enterprises in the new supply chains? Do new ports and transport hubs need to be created within the country? What is the best way to build a secure logistics network that is resistant to external challenges?
