The State, Banks, and the Medical Industry: Is Effective Cooperation Possible? Panel session Infrastructure for healthy living In partnership with Promsvyazbank Effective investment in healthcare will enhance the availability of medical care. The main condition for generating interest among investors is the large and growing market for medical services. Given the population’s insufficient purchasing power, the government is the main customer for medicine, including through the Healthcare National Project. This project will provide a powerful incentive for investment in the development of the medical and pharmaceutical industry, computerization, medical services, and education. Another condition is the creation of clear and mutually beneficial rules of cooperation between the state, banks, and business. What volume of the medical services market and supporting industries are investors interested in? What is preventing investors from boosting their investments today? What guarantees should the government offer to ensure stable investment? What areas of investment will ensure a significant social effect?

At the same time, a number of points of view exist as to what is meant by ‘healthy eating’. Promoting sensible eating takes on particular importance in these conditions. What needs to be changed in the legislative regulation of the ‘healthy’ food market? What conditions must be put in place for the industry? How can a culture of healthy eating be created in society? How can consumers be better informed through implementing advanced food product labelling systems?

How to Improve the Quality of Medical Services in Russia and Increase Exports Round table Infrastructure for healthy living Accredited by the Commission of the Coordinating Council for the Development of Continuing Medical Education The President of the Russian Federation gave instructions to increase exports of medical services to USD 1 billion per year by 2024. Today, there are about 110,000 foreign medical tourists coming to Russia per year. The key to increasing the inflow of medical tourists is to guarantee high-quality healthcare at the country’s medical and resort institutions as well as to ensure the healthcare network has the available capacity. What measures should be taken to guarantee that medical tourists are provided with a quality of healthcare that is consistent with international standards? How can we make Russia’s resort industry accessible to citizens of the Russian Federation and attractive to medical tourists? Would an increased inflow of medical tourists reduce the availability of healthcare for Russian citizens? How should patients from other countries be informed about the opportunities offered by Russian medical and health institutions?
