The Chairman of Vnesheconombank Sergey Gorkov has joined the Supervisory Board of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI). The order was signed by the Chairman of the Russian Government Dmitry Medvedev.
‘We are entering the phase of proactive work with constituent entities of the Russian Federation on up-and-coming investment projects. In cooperation with ASI, we are looking for knowledgeable and highly qualified professionals, representing, primarily, local development institutions, non-commercial organizations and associations, in particular those who have a background in government structures, investment and finance. We call for them to enlist our team to jointly promote the economy of the regions’, the Chairman of Vnesheconombank Sergey Gorkov noted.
VEB and ASI have been cooperating in a number of business areas, in particular, on the introduction of the Bank’s new approach to the selection of regional projects for investment. Using the ASI open selection methodology and LEADER-ID online platform, Vnesheconombank selects managers throughout the regions. After having been trained and certified by VEB, the specialists will engage in the search for and initial screening of investment projects in compliance with the Bank’s priorities and in cooperation with the project initiators. Applications to participate in the first selection stage of VEB’s local managers are to be filed on the website prior to April 30.
