In the end, the path to success is seen through the prism of the quality and not just the quantity of economic growth. We will explore the economic pathways for the Russian economy, including the key international factors affecting its growth performance, such as commodity price dynamics and international capital flows. We will also debate the issues of what an optimal model of economic modernization for Russia is: Should the government prioritize macroeconomic stability or accord greater importance to boosting economic growth? These are some of the issues that the Valdai Club will discuss at the next economic seminar.
