Among the instruments of the RES, the socio-economic development strategy of the constituent entities until 2030, which includes an export component, is indicated. However, the Strategy of Socio-Economic Development of the Russian Federation until 2030 has not yet been developed, and most regions are awaiting its release. One of the tools is the presence of the region in priority countries, and without an approved Strategy it is difficult to find out whether there is a presence there, ”said Natalya Minaeva. The topic is planned to be discussed in the Government of the Russian Federation in order to consider the possibility of postponing the implementation of some of the Standard's instruments to the next year.
