An increase in infrastructure investment is one of the key drivers of long-term growth of Russia's economy. A high level of infrastructure coverage helps to improve the productivity of other factors of production.

In addition, infrastructure investments make it possible to reduce the cost of existing infrastructure projects, expand export capabilities, and develop and unlock the potential of human capital.

The two-day program of the 2018 Moscow Financial Forum will include a discussion titled "Infrastructure Development Investments: Private Financing Potential".

What are the most in-demand types of infrastructure at the moment? What measures need to be taken to enable an "infrastructure breakthrough"? How to raise private financing for infrastructure projects? These are some of the questions that speakers and guests will address on the first day of the Forum on September 6.
