AGRO-INDUSTRIAL CLUSTERS: OPPORTUNITIES FOR INNOVATIVE DEVELOPMENT AND FINANCING
Attention to the models of agro-industrial clusters in the Russian Federation economy, their potential opportunities and innovative development prospects is drawn due to a number of exogenous and endogenous factors. Global financial instability, inadequate financial institutions, tools and mechanisms, a lack of effective system of public-private partnerships, and high geopolitical risks complement the existing totality of problems. In addition, business entities do not possess sufficient information regarding all financial market products that reduces the efficiency of the Russian economy. To compensate for these negative trends, the authors suggest to use innovative features of cluster development in the agro-industrial complex, as well as to improve the financing system of business entities through the mezzanine financing mechanism.
