Role of the russian federation on the world grain market


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2018-3-16-21

Annotation: The grain market is an important element of the general market of the Russian Federation. Its development affects not only the nature of the reproductive process of the national economy, but also the macroeconomic indicators. The grain market depends on the climatic conditions of the region and the country as a whole. Since it is a strategically important segment of the economy, the political climate in the state depends on its yield. The aim of the work is to analyze the world grain market, as well as to study the role of the Russian Federation on it. In the course of the research, methods of empirical research were used. In particular, a comparison was made between the main indicators of the world market and the place of the Russian Federation on it. Thanks to the application of theoretical research methods, analysis and synthesis, the main features of the grain market were identified and characterized. Also, the main factors influencing the development of the world grain market were revealed. According to the results of the study, it can be concluded that over the past 3 years, despite the crisis trends, the Russian Federation has strengthened its positions and has taken a leading position in the production and export of grain crops. Over the past 10 years, the dynamics of changes in the volume of grain production in the world and in Russia completely coincide. Thus, the diversity of natural conditions in Russia neutralizes the impact of local factors affecting yields. The main factors and patterns that determine the productivity in the world will also act for the Russian Federation.

Policy of import substitution as a main principle of growth of international competitiveness in the economy of the region of rostov


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2018-3-36-46

Annotation: The article gives an assessment of the effectiveness of implementing investment projects for import substitution in the territory of the region in 2018 with a view to increasing the international competitiveness of the Rostov region’s economy. For a long time, the so-called “restorative model” of economic development was functioning in Russia, based on the involvement of unused capacities and labor in production, as well as on the fast-growing external demand for Russian raw materials. In the aggregate, this determined the raw material orientation of Russian exports, high import dependence, technological backwardness and other problematic aspects of the country’s socioeconomic development. As a matter of fact the situation determines high relevance of the survey dedicated to find the ways to invest into import substitution projects on the territory of the region of Rostov, and to help to identify the elements able to impact on the development of the area, rather to increase international competitiveness of its economy. External geoeconomic and geopolitical challenges have a significant effect on bisiness activities of companies. At the same time the rapid increase of geoeconomic competition and geopolitical discrepancies transform not only the business traditions of the region, but seriously reduce the volume of international participation in it. Moreover, the facts mentioned above are extremely significant also out of inmediate context of export activity on world markets, especially if the region is already a subject of economic policy aimed to increase the competitiveness of local enterprises, science inrensity and fabrication of the products. Thus, the analysis of import substitution of economic, social, spatial imperatives of the development of the region is characterised by considerable relevance mostly under the circumstances of global uncertainty, and is a reason of application of various methods for assessing of the present and future of the area.

Water policy of afghanistan in central asia


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2018-3-54-66

Annotation: The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is one of the coastal states of the largest transboundary Central Asian river Amu Darya. From here she starts her run, forming a border with Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan. Almost 14% of the catchment area of the Aral Sea (1,771.5 thousand km2) is in Afghanistan (246 km2), home to about 20% of the country’s population. In the conditions of still regional instability, the tasks set by Afghanistan for the exploitation of water resources should be implemented using the water potential of the Amu Darya River, which in turn is used by Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. Over the past 30 years, Afghanistan’s interests in the water sector have been ignored. Because of the military conflict, Afghanistan is not involved in transboundary water management agreements, although it is their potential participant. With the stabilization of the domestic political situation in Afghanistan, the main economic development will be aimed at ensuring food security through the growth of irrigated agricultural land, which in turn will increase the amount of water already used by the already over-exploited Amu Darya runoff. This will entail a decrease in the water supply in Central Asia, which will become a worrying sign and will have serious consequences for Afghanistan’s interstate relations with the Central Asian states. The joint use of the waters of Afghan rivers entering the territory of neighboring Central Asian states will in the future become one of the most complex problems of interstate and, above all, economic relations.

Features of application of analytical procedures during an audit of calculations with the personnel on payment


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2018-3-98-102

Annotation: In a market economy, the development of technological industries, increasing the number of organizations providing services, increases the importance of labor resources in the organization. Currently, bonuses are one of the items of expenditure in the calculation with the personnel on payment. Accrual of bonuses is one of the ways of material incentives for employees. At the same time, regardless of the industry of the organization, the value of labor resources in the organization is not the last in the list of the importance of types of resources. The importance of qualitative indicators of the workforce is difficult to assess. At the same time, often the determination of the cost evaluation of employees ‘ performance is carried out with the use of bonuses on the results of work for the month, quarter or year. Thus, in those areas of operation of the organization, in which the result of the work of employees of the organization directly depends on the financial result of the organization as a whole, the company uses a premium system of remuneration. It is especially important to use this system of remuneration in sales and industries in which the creative and intellectual potential of employees is directly involved (for example, in the field of design, information technology, advertising agencies) [2]. In this regard, during the audit of settlements with the personnel on remuneration, the auditor pays special attention to the audit of bonus accruals: the process of approval of the calculation method, the method of calculation of premiums, indicators that are the basis for the calculation of premiums, positions for which the accrual of premiums in the organization is provided. To assess these indicators, the auditor may use analytical procedures [1]. The article describes the analytical procedures that the auditor can use when checking the calculation of premiums by the audited entity as additional procedures used in the audit process to assess and identify the risks of material misstatement in the calculations with the personnel on remuneration.
