Полный текст:



Objective: to identify and systematize the key factors of international competitiveness of the Russian regions and identify the key areas of its improvement.

Methods: institutional and systemic approaches, factor and comparative analysis.

Results: the key current problems of agriculture in Russia are highlighted; promising areas of support to Russian agriculture under the WTO restrictions are identified. The Republic of Tatarstan is viewed as an example, as it has the potential to become a food donor of federal significance. The model of the import substitution project implementation is formed, in which a сentral place belongs to the regional import substitution strategy.

Scientific novelty: a high potential of WTO "green basket" measures in the sphere of the Russian agro-industrial complex support is grounded. The model of import substitution project is constructed, based on the regional import substitution strategy, which includes interaction with the project stakeholders and takes into account the impact of internal and external institutional environments on the project.

Practical value: the research results can be used for the formation of the federal program of import substitution in Russia, as well as for the formation of regional strategies of import substitution.
