Development and practical application of the set of economic and mathematical models to analyze and forecast correlation between Russian Railways performance indicators and the development of the Russian economy, its industries and regions | 24-09-2012
Project Dates: May — June 2012

The project was implemented for the Center for Strategic Research.

Project Goal:

Working out methodology and quantification of the effects of development within the Russian railway transport on the socio — economic development of the regions of Russia.

The project has the following objectives :
  • develop a methodology for assessing the economic cost of possible restrictions on the amount of inter-regional rail freight;

  • develop a methodology for assessing the relationship between the intensity of passenger traffic and the level of socio-economic development of the regions;

  • global overview of assessments of the impact of infrastructure investments in passenger commuter traffic on the socio-economic development of metropolitan areas (including growth rates of production, employment, income per capita);

  • global overview of general equilibrium models for the evaluation of infrastructure projects in railway transport;

  • conducting simulation scenarios for Russia up to 2030, based on a general equilibrium model;

  • development of recommendations for the use of this model for the construction of numerical assessments of the impact of inter-regional rail traffic on the socio-economic development of regions.
