The Conference features a diverse agenda concerning social and economic development in Russia. The major part of reports will include presentations by Russian and international academics, roundtables and plenary sessions with participation of the Russian Federation Government members, governmental officials, business representatives, and leading Russian and foreign experts.

725 representatives from 55 countries have registered to participate in the XXI April Conference. All of them, as well as other researchers and experts, will have the opportunity to discuss the reports that were selected while reviewing. Along with new format workshop sessions, other conference events, including associated ones, will be held.

There is every reason to believe that this year the April International Scientific Conference will not only show results according to its high rating, but also enhance the image of a platform on which the latest outstanding research results are presented and competent discussions on the most challenging and acute problems of social development are held. This year the site becomes virtual for the first time.

We sincerely wish the participants of the conference interesting discussions, fruitful research, health and success!
