Abstract

The paper looks to identify and forecast the trends in foreign economic activity of Russian regions that reflect the state of their competitiveness. The study used: cluster analysis - to identify homogeneous groups of regions with similar parameters of different types of foreign economic activity; comparative analysis - to establish model regions reflecting the specific aspects of development of the respective clusters; correlation and regression analysis - to identify and predict the dynamics of foreign economic activity parameters reflecting the competitiveness of Russian regions. The study reveals the specific aspects of changes in the competitiveness of the typical «average» regions of Russia — Voronezh and Yaroslavl oblasts. We have determined the actual dynamics and forecast of indicators of various aspects of regional competitiveness, such as imports from non-CIS countries, exports to non-CIS countries, imports and exports of technologies and technical services, foreign direct investment. The forecast range is 2020-2024.
