About import substitution
Back in 2009, President Vladimir Putin of Russia announced the launch of import substitution programs in the Russian sectors that had obvious competitive advantages.
Last year, in the face of economic sanctions imposed against Russia by a number of western countries, import substitution became a priority for the national economic development strategy and now calls for the development and manufacture of advanced high technology products inside Russia.
