            [post_content] => Today, the interaction between government and business, which intends to continue working in Russia, is reaching a new level. Quick solutions are needed to rebuild the economy. Officials are looking for them, among others, in Russian private and state-owned companies.

The speed of preparation of constructive proposals for the authorities, the quality of expertise and active participation in the discussion of initiatives are the main success factors in GR and business as a whole.

Turbulent periods can work for rapprochement and cooperation. Even if the current result of the joint efforts of business and the state is not as effective as it could be, it will become a foundation for systematic joint work in the future.
