The jubilee St. Petersburg Economic Forum has ended and some of its main results are already visible. First of all, it became clear that the Russian economy, despite all the difficulties and external pressure, feels great and looks to the future with confidence. There is no regression, given the turbulence of recent years, the pandemic, the start of a special operation to liberate Donbass, and thousands of sanctions imposed by the West. And according to the majority of analysts and experts, on the contrary, it received an additional incentive and opportunities for development. In some regions of the country, the sanctions made it possible to sharply increase the volume of investments, already focused on internal flows, and to work out their own promising economic programs.
