Mobility sector – Transport of the future
September 3d 2020, 11:30-12:40
Based on international and Russian experience, tasks related to the development of transport infrastructure, increasing its throughput and speed of transportation of goods and reducing the costs of transportation of goods are in a basis of the implementation of all large-scale programs aimed at strengthening the immune system of the world economy and enter the trajectory of sustainable high-quality growth.

At the same time, an efficiently operating transport industry is, on the one hand, a condition for reaching stable rates of economic growth in most industries, and, on the other hand, is itself one of the most important sources of growth since it provides demand for construction services, materials, equipment and vehicles.

That is why, taking into account the geographical location of Russia, one of the priority tasks in the framework of the formation of the transport of the future, based on the principles of Industry 4.0, is not only the development of transport using alternative fuels, unmanned vehicles, vacuum trains, multicopters, etc., but also in uncovering bottlenecks: creating a modern, high-quality infrastructure for high-speed traffic.

In order to enhance the multiplier effect from the planned investments in infrastructure the introduction of innovations, new materials and solutions aimed at reducing the cost of construction and improving the quality characteristics of the objects are required. Only in this case, the construction of infrastructure facilities will have a stimulating effect on strengthening the immune system of the economy and the development of non-resource sectors in general.

What are the main directions of the transformation of the sector of mobility and infrastructure projects in the post-coronavirus world? What are the main global trends? How is it possible to ensure the environmental friendliness and safety of the transport of the future and to ensure the opening of the most bottlenecks? Experience of countries developing interregional and intercountry joint projects?
