Regions working to improve their economic activity indices

The Analytical Centre has held a round-table conference titled “Russia's regions: economic potential and growth opportunities”. Deputy Head of the Analytical Center Mikhail Pryadilnikov presented a survey of the economic situation in the regions of Russia, which was conducted jointly with the World Bank.

“A notable inequality when it comes to per capita GRP was found, at the level of regions and districts”, Mr. Pryadilnikov  reported. “Our resource regions can well compete with the developed countries in some parameters, while some other regions are comparable only to Central Asia and Africa.” The expert explains that, in this situation, conducting an objective evaluation based on the forecast model employed is hardly feasible, meaning the said model requires further fine-tuning.

    Electric vehicles will be one of the factors driving down demand for oil
    "There is growing uncertainty regarding future demand for oil in the world," said Analytical Center expert Alexander Amiragyan, speaking at the international forum Oil Refinery and Electric Vehicles. According to the expert, there are a number of factors contributing to this uncertainty such as the slowing down of the global GDP growth (including in the emerging markets), the falling oil consumption in the developed countries, worsening environmental problems in major cities and the need to limit motor vehicle exhaust emissions. The growing competition between different types of transport fuel (natural gas, electric power) is also playing a part, as is the desire of many countries to reduce their dependence on external energy sources, including by means of promoting domestic fuels. In light of all that, wide adoption of electric vehicles is going to put additional downward pressure on the demand for motor fuels.
