In the near future, both the United States and other countries will have to deal with the return of production to their territory. And in the Russian Federation, it is necessary to launch the processes of mass project financing as soon as possible, which is urgently needed today for small and medium-sized businesses. This — lending for a period of three years, at a low interest rate and with minimum collateral. With the mass introduction of such lending into the banking system, the growth of the economy of the Russian Federation will be 10-15% per year, and this is confirmed — in 1999-2007, in many ways it was due to project financing that growth was already ensured. There are all the methods and technologies for this, there are personnel, and the University named after M.V. G. V. Plekhanova.
