Faculty of Public Administration
The global financial crisis of 2008-2009 opened a new stage in the dialog between the state and the business. After unexpected shocks of the crisis, the bureaucratic authorities realized that the situation changed dramatically, and that the former stability might not continue without economic growth. Russia’s paramount chiefs chose small and medium businesses as a new driver for economic growth in the forthcoming decade. Thus, it is possible to note that a new phase in the state-business relations started by the understanding of the role that businesses play in the new model of economic growth and generally in the social stability in Russia. The quality of this new dialog and follow-up actions in the improvement of the state-business relations will define Russia’s future.The theme of this study is going to be “Mechanisms of feedback between government and business in Russia: example of ASI”. Relevance of this subject is defined as the necessity of formation of productive state-business interaction to stimulate Russia’s economy.The aim of this study is to analyze current mechanisms of feedback between government and business in Russia and to reveal ASI’s promising development trends.The objectives are as follows:To describe the current theoretical concepts of state-business interaction;To describe the ASI’s history, principles and functions;To analyze the activity of the ASI and to determine the main results of its actions;To analyze ASI’s compliance with international standards.To reveal the risks and problems faced by this institute;To make a conclusion on the direction of ASI’s developmentThe Agency developed a number of practical measures directed at the improvement of the state-business interaction. Thanks to the ASI there is absolutely new format of state-business relations. It possible to conclude that each of the ASI’s projects resolve a particular, concrete problem, but also can lead to changes in the legislation framework. However, no impressive progress in the business environment was noticed; and the main reason of it is that our state machine work for its interest instead of the public benefit. It is obvious that the state apparatus need to be refreshed and changed.
