Abstract   |   Authors   |   References
At present, socio-economic development in leading countries is characterized by intensive development of cooperation between government, business and society. In conditions when territories gain more autonomy in solving socio-economic development problems, business entities act as funding sources for addressing the most urgent issues, the priority of which is impossible to determine without participation of the public. Having studied the evolution of cooperation between government and business in Russia we point out that the extent of government participation in the economy depends on its national development specifics at different stages, which determines the diversity of their interaction models. Having reviewed domestic and foreign research works we systematize the existing models of trilateral interaction. The paper analyzes the implementation of joint projects and programs by the authorities and business in the Russian Federation and reveals forms of participation of society in addressing regional problems on the example of the Vologda Oblast. Streamlining the interaction between the authorities, business and society will help unite their efforts to solve priority development tasks in the territory. In this regard, we propose a set of recommendations for the authorities that will help develop this trilateral cooperation. The study uses system approach, structural-functional analysis, method of expert estimations, groupings, comparison and generalization; tabular and graphical techniques for data visualization are applied, as well. Legislative acts and other regulatory documents of state authorities and administration, official data of the Ministry of Economic Development, and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs serve as information base of the study. We also use the results of a survey of heads of Vologda City enterprises conducted by ISEDT RAS with our direct participation. The findings of the paper can be used in scientific and educational activities. They are of practical interest to the authorities, because they can help improve economic policy aimed to promote participation of business and society in dealing with problems of the territory
