The session's moderator was Evelina Zakamskaya, Russian TV Host and Director of Programs at the Agency for Strategic Initiatives to Promote New Projects.

Federal-level speakers noted the high performance of the Republic. Svetlana Chupsheva, CEO of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives, said that Bashkortostan is one of the leading regions in the investment climate improvement. The speaker noted that the ASI will recommend the republic's experience to foreign partners, a task assigned by President Vladimir Putin at the Agency's Supervisory Board.

“A consortium of EAEU countries has already been created, where we and our partners are developing joint approaches and programs to improve the investment climate, selecting best practices in ecology and climate adaptation. This year, as part of the BRICS summit, we will hold a contest for the best promising solutions in investment, technological, and social development,” said Svetlana Chupsheva. “We recommend the Republic of Bashkortostan as a leading region where competent and effective work has been done to improve the quality of life and the business environment.”

Denis Butsayev, CEO of the Russian Environmental Operator company, noted that in the past four years the Republic has significantly increased its environmental rating. In the first year of the REO's Green Rating, Bashkortostan was in the fifth decile, but by 2023, it had entered the top ten. Butsayev is confident that the environmental projects currently being implemented in Bashkortostan will lead to even higher rankings.

“The Green Rating is a comprehensive assessment of various factors, including service quality, population coverage, and many other parameters. When we first launched this rating, Bashkortostan was in the fifth decile. Last year, we awarded the Republic for being among the top ten regions,” the speaker said.
