Chubais predicted a large-scale transformation of the Russian economy

Speaking at the & nbsp; forum & quot; Open innovations & quot;, Chubais noted that & nbsp; the information revolution has happened, the current generation of people is happy to become a witness which happened in the & nbsp; last 30 years and & nbsp; completely changed the economy and & nbsp; life of people.

“ I & nbsp; believe that & nbsp; we & nbsp; are now & nbsp; one step away from & nbsp; the beginning of exactly the same & nbsp; & nbsp; scale of the process, just not & nbsp; in & nbsp; information, but & nbsp; in & nbsp; energy. In & nbsp; energy, it seems to me, in & nbsp; that & nbsp; same term & nbsp; & mdash; in & nbsp; the next 30 years & nbsp; & mdash; there will be a radical revision of all basic principles. And I & nbsp; I emphasize, it is not & nbsp; only about & nbsp; electric power, for & nbsp; me dear, & nbsp; & mdash; we are talking about & nbsp; industry, transport, agriculture, construction, & nbsp; everyday life. In general, we are talking about all those areas where energy appears. They will all undergo profound fundamental transformations. It will change the life of each of & nbsp; us, it will change almost any business & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; Chubais said.

He acknowledged that Russia is very vulnerable to these changes, since the energy sector plays a special role for it.

'Everyone has energy, but & nbsp; in & nbsp; Russia is not & nbsp; just one of & nbsp; sectors are the spine of the national economy: 20% of GDP, 40% of federal budget revenues, 60% of exports. This is generally serious '', & nbsp; & mdash; said & nbsp; he.

& nbsp; On the one hand, we are & nbsp; extremely vulnerable, and & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; on the other & nbsp; & mdash; we have colossal opportunities. In addition to the fact that the & nbsp; energy transition will change everything without & nbsp; excluding the real sector industry in the & nbsp; country, it also opens up opportunities for & nbsp; creation of those industries that now do not & nbsp; exist at all. I & nbsp; counted from & nbsp; five to & nbsp; ten new industries that are not in the & nbsp; country today & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; added Chubais.
