No 1193, OECD Economics Department Working Papers from OECD Publishing

Abstract: Transport can play an important role in promoting growth, diversification and regional convergence. However, with insufficient investment and incomplete structural reforms, Russia faces very large challenges in modernising its large transport system. Urban transport problems are intensifying, because of weak policy coordination and inadequate traffic management. Promoting competition in the transport sector is essential, in particular by effectively opening the railway freight market to independent operators. This Working Paper relates to the 2013 Economic Survey of the Russian Federation (www.oecd.org/eco/surveys/economic-survey-russian-federation.htm). Améliorer les infrastructures de transport en Russie Les transports peuvent jouer un rôle important dans la promotion de la croissance, la diversification et la convergence régionale. Cependant, du fait d’un niveau insuffisant d’investissements et de réformes structurelles incomplètes, la Russie doit faire face à de très grands défis afin de moderniser son système de transport. Les problèmes de transport urbain s'intensifient en raison de la faible coordination des politiques et d’une gestion inadéquate du trafic. Promouvoir la concurrence dans le secteur des transports est essentiel en particulier via l'ouverture effective du marché du fret ferroviaire aux opérateurs indépendants. Ce document de travail se rapporte à l’Étude économique de l’OCDE 2013 sur la Fédération de Russie (www.oecd.org/fr/eco/etudes/etude-economique-russie.htm).
