In the first half of 2021, the Tyumen, Novosibirsk, Sverdlovsk, and Pskov regions, as well as the Altai Territory led the way in introducing the Regional Export Standard 2.0 in Russia, the Russian Export Centre (REC) reports.
It has been noted that the most "advanced" regions have already implemented from 10 to 12 of the export standard's requirements. The results were summarised at the All-Russian Conference on Export Support Infrastructure that is taking place in Belgorod.
We have already taken stock of the export standard's implementation in the Central Federal District, which is catching up with the country's top 10 leaders. The Central Federal District includes the largest number of entities implementing the export standard this year: 10 out of 18 entities have implemented its instruments in their territory.
Per the Russian Export Centre, almost all of the Central Federal District's regions reached the first benchmark figure of the federal project in time, implementing 7 of the export standard's 15 tools by 31 July.
The Regional Export Standard 2.0 was developed in accordance with the national project "International Cooperation and Export" and includes unified approaches to creating an export development environment that takes into account regional specificities.
