China and Southeast Asian countries are considered as a world factory. Over the past decades, a modern production basis has been created in the region. With a low wage and overhead, it provides a high level of productivity at low cost.
The utilization of full capacity is an extensive development path as it foresees the use of idle production capacities. That is not appropriate due to its technological noncompetitiveness, a clear example of what is a low level of robotisation.
Addressing these challenges requires the possibility for Russian enterprises to integrate into international production and logistics chains. Thus, it determines the possibility for the development of non-oil exports.

The participants to the session discussed the specific features of the Russian market and the key drivers for repositioning of the Russian exporters in global value chains; measures to be taken to create the enterprises in Russia, enabled to compete with the leading Asian manufacturers; the technologies which are the most decisive in terms of the competitiveness of Russian manufacturers.
