The concept of spatial development of the Russian Federation until 2025 (approved in May 2017) proposes a partition of national territory on some macro-region’s. For the new areas will be identified priorities of economic development and industry specialization and eventually an appropriate place in the national and global division of labor. The author examines one of the proposed approaches to the allocation of macro-regions based on social-economic principles. The views of participants of the Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum 2018 are given. They criticized the proposed concept, outlined the fundamental points that need to be addressed. The discussion continues.
