The forum aims to select and implement the 100 best ideas. In July, the final stage will be held, at which the best ideas will be presented to the President of the Russian Federation.
On June 20, the Governor of the Rostov region Vasily Golubev participated in the final stage of the regional selection of forum ideas. According to him, within the framework of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, an agreement on cooperation was signed with the Agency for Strategic Initiatives, the general director of which noted that the Don region is among the active participants in the forum.
- This year, 1,103 initiatives were submitted from the Rostov Region, which is 2.5 times more than a year ago. Our region ranks fourth in the country in the formation of ideas,” said Vasily Golubev, Governor of the Rostov Region.
As a result of the selection, ten most interesting projects were first identified. And then, at the final stage of the regional selection of forum initiatives, the three best ones were named, which will be supported by the relevant ministries. This is the creation of the Rostov Plant of Technological Equipment cluster with the idea of import-substituting production. The second place was taken by the initiative to create a single official digital platform with tasks from enterprises to be solved by research teams. The third finalist is the project of the creative industries center.
- Most of all I liked the applied nature of the projects that were shown here. Now many start-up entrepreneurs are thinking about how to implement their initiatives. Our task is to bring these ideas to life. In case of successful implementation, our experience can be replicated in other regions,” summed up the governor of the Rostov region Vasily Golubev.
