Moscow, July 4, 2017 Analytical Center under the Government of the Russian Federation in the framework of the Business Summit "Strong Russia - 2017" hosted the section "Investment Potential of the Russian Economy".

The Business Summit "Strong Russia" is an authoritative annual platform for expanding the partnership opportunities, Russian science, business and creating favorable conditions for effective business activity.

Businessmen who are interested in getting support from the state, as well as representatives of state development institutes and other structures that support entrepreneurship traditionally take part in the work of the Summit.

The topic of the investment development of the oil and gas industry was highlighted by the Executive Vice President of NewTech Services LLC, a professor at the RGU of Oil and Gas named after Gubkin, expert of the State Duma Committee on Energy Valery Bessel. Mr. Bessel noted the low level of the investment attractiveness of the industry, explaining that currently invested $ 35-40 billion is clearly not enough. The necessary minimum is 90-95 billion dollars. "We need to create a system of attracting public-private money as an investment in the Russian oil and gas complex," summed up Valery Bessel in his speech.
