Abstract

This article focuses on spatial and territorial distribution of innovative production facilities and modern technologically advanced processes as one of the re-industrialization issues. Traditionally, large cities have created more favourable environment for re-industrialization due to their material and socio-cultural components. The results of the survey, conducted by the authors in Sverdlovskaya Oblast, show that small and medium-sized towns potentially possess social and cultural prerequisites for re-industrialization: young adults from these settlements demonstrate positive attitudes and potential comparable with those of the youth living in large cities. It was revealed that in small and medium-sized towns the youth value knowledge as an important resource for doing business, and highly self-assess such qualities as leadership and entrepreneurship. However, young adults evaluate conditions for doing business in small and medium-sized towns as less favourable. In the future the youth intend to get engaged in trading, service and tourism activities. Only young adults from Ekaterinburg consider manufacturing as a perspective field of their activities. The authors conclude that in terms of spatial and territorial distribution, small and medium-sized towns possess the required labour potential capacity to implement the concept of re-industrialization. It is essential to assist the youth in small and medium-sized towns in acquiring the in-demand skills as well as promote a comprehensive policy aimed at developing socio-cultural environment in the settlements. These measures will not only contribute to meeting the challenge of re-industrialization, but also will preserve small settlements, that are rapidly losing grounds for their economic development.
