Photo: Sergey of Savostyanov/TASS has passed annual CEO Forum of Alfa-Bank In Moscow. Its participants have discussed including the macroeconomic forecast, digital transformation and also ways of increase in efficiency of business. The chairman of the board of directors of Alfa-Bank banking group Pyotr Aven has told on him about the book devoted to Boris Berezovsky. And on the forum sidelines the correspondent of Business FM managed to ask Aven three questions: about economy, about a situation around Russia and about problems of the Russian business: When in the 90th there was a formation of economy what it to you seemed in about 20-25 years and whether expectations have coincided with what left? Pyotr Aven: Partially, of course, have coincided because in general the model, the general model for capitalist economy which we formed, generally, has taken place, but she saw to us significantly more competitive, less monopolized and a smaller share of public sector. In general after all it is rather yes or rather not? Pyotr Aven: More likely, yes. Of course, rather yes, just nobody remembers what was, already all forget. But, when we have come to the government, it was the country with a State Planning Committee, with absolutely absolutely controlled prices, with absolute monopoly of the state foreign trade and so on. There was just absolutely other economic model, it is completely broken therefore, of course, it is rather yes. If to tell about a present situation how to you further succession of events around Russia, in Russia seems? Here now say about new Cold War, it much already to what it is necessary to be ready? Pyotr Aven: I don't think that there will be a Cold War, but I think that in the next years we will have heavy time, same as now. Cardinal changes neither in that, nor in other party I don't wait. And how long it can be? Decades? Pyotr Aven: I don't know. Any forecasts concerning time always are inexact, it can't be guessed. It is possible to see the general trend. Now, certainly, difficult relations very much, and, I think, in the nearest future they will become better not in many respects because of an internal political situation in the West actually. And here everything that we see in America, in many respects is defined by the political reasons. All set of the reasons convinces that in the nearest future it will become easier not. The main problems of the Russian business is some law enforcement or this lack, so to say, of clear and invariable rules of the game today? Pyotr Aven: Well, it seems to me that first of all it is the suppressed competition, difficulty to begin new business, besides the difficult regulatory environment. And, generally, because of all this situation of restriction on investments. Therefore this, I think, the basic. The suppressed competition is in many respects the investigation of a superfluous, in my opinion, role of the state in economy. Besides Pyotr Aven, owners and a top have taken part in CEO Forum
