The article summarizes the results of research into analysis and modeling of interregional value chains (IRVCs). The necessity of developing state policy aimed at IRVC development is substantiated. The existing analytical and modeling tools for improving the quality of management of these processes are systematized and tested. The primary directions and instruments of IRVC regulation are presented.

And also in “zones of confidence,” primarily the EAEU.
Note that in the Spatial Development Strategy, significant importance for the task of eliminating imbalances in the economy and territorial development is given to the macroregional level, to strengthening interregional ties, i.e., essentially, to IRVC development.
According to Web of Science data, 13.5 thousand publications that mention “value chain” have been published globally since 1987, in recent years about 1300–1500 new publications on the topic appear per year; in Russia, according to RSCI data, 329 publications have been published since 2008.

Applied to industries of different regions involved in adding value, this decomposition turns into IRVCs.
By volume of final consumption of products.
By gross added value created by a given industry.
For reference: the global average value of D in 2011 was 2.15. The 2011 value of D in Russia, according to our estimate, was 1.90.
In 2011–2014 the average annual GDP growth rate decreased from 4.3% to 0.7%. Gross fixed capital formation slowed down from 109.1% in 2011 to 97.9% in 2014.
An early version of a regional model that recognizes only one spatial effect – the unilateral effect of changes in exogenous demand on the output of “national” and “regional” products identified in the region.
