On May 19 in Chelyabinsk, the Urals Federal District forum for public-private partnerships was held with the assistance of the Government of the Chelyabinsk region, the Moscow Centre for PPP Development, and the Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Urals Federal District. RISE Capital Investment Group was an official partner of the event.
Leading Russian PPP experts, representatives of the federal authorities, heads of infrastructure companies and public organisations took part in the forum. The key topics for discussion were models and tools to stimulate private investment in the development of municipal infrastructure.
At the plenary session, the managing partner of RISE Capital Sergey Romashov talked about the implementation of infrastructure projects in the Urals Federal District, including the construction of the Bovanenkovo-Sabetta railway line. The line length of 170 kilometers will connect the region rich in natural resources to the port of Sabetta, opening freight transport routes to the Northern Sea Route, which is the shortest route to Western Europe and Asia. The project envisages that the line will be built by 2019, and will be under operation until 2036. After that, the line will become the property of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District.
