The Analytical Center hosted an expert discussion of the projects for Investment Policy of the State Company “Russian Highways” (Avtodor). The project was presented by the Deputy Chairman of the Board at Avtodor Alexander Nosov.

The First Deputy Director General of the Analytical Center Vladislav Onischenko emphasized in his welcoming speech that the project is important, well-timed and well-elaborated.

Alexander Nosov informed that the project helped to set up a system of investment priorities, sending messages into the market that take into account both the international expertise and the Russian practices.

The document discloses the investment goals and priorities of the Avtodor and industry specificities with regard to public-private partnerships as well as ensuring transparency in investment decisions. The document presents a classification of organizational and contractual arrangements as well as requirements for projects and their participants.

Experts pointed out that one of the key tasks of a state company is to shape the market of investors and contractors in the field of industry-specific public-private partnerships. This is duly reflected in the document along with a series of other activity directions and ways of implementing them.

On the whole the project was approved by the expert community.
