Foreign direct investment is steadily growing in the world, decreasing in the crisis years, but always restoring its flow. In 25-30 years its geography has expanded considerably. The number of countries and territories making investments abroad has doubled since the 1980s. The circle of donor-countries and the countries-recipients of foreign direct investment is expanding. Unlike most countries of the Central and Eastern Europe, such major emerging markets like China, Brazil, India, Russia has not yet created favorable investment climate, which implies stable political and macroeconomic environment, as well as protection of property rights. In addition to basic measures, aimed at creating attractive conditions for foreign direct investment, such as tax holidays, tax incentives, the use of the guarantee system, specific incentives to attract foreign direct investment have been successfully applied in different countries. Specific incentives for attracting foreign direct investment, such as creating areas of advanced development, where special legal regime for entrepreneurial activities is established, promotion of Russian companies in the world markets, export promotion are highly effective tools in enhancing the competitiveness of Russia in the global foreign direct investment market.

Under the conditions of informatization of all human activity aspects special role is acquiring the use of space-based systems that can provide globality, operational efficiency and high frequency of receiving and delivering information to consumers. Following new requirements to space systems necessitates creation of multi-satellite (tens and hundreds of spacecraft) groups in orbit, which cannot be realized through the use of spacecraft with a mass between one and several tons, primarily due to purely economic reasons. This results in the need to significantly reduce weight and size of spacecraft.

The course of artificial intelligence development in the XXI century in the context of formation of new technological modes and post-nonclassical management paradigm can be forecasted based on analysis of its many-sided and thorny historical retrospective. This way, of course, is not assured from unexpected traps. However, they can be avoided by finding new solutions in unfamiliar spaces for modeling, based on other approaches to solving complex problems and semantic interpretation of data by synthesizing for these innovations still unknown materials for computer memory and processors.

The paper deals with the problem of defining responsible leadership in international relations and domestic policy. The analysis of theoretical approaches to understanding leadership in politics and specifics of decision-making made it possible to identify responsible leadership criteria, to determine their nature and the minimum quantity required. The table of responsible leadership, generated on the basis of the analysis, allowed to create a new behavioral model of leadership based on the synthesis of two approaches: typology of political leadership by Jean Blondel and the principle of “Nash equilibrium”. Their aggregate gives us the possibility to talk not only about the responsibility of a true political leader, but also about his indispensable accountability, which allows the leader to ensure sustainable development and to achieve the most positive result in foreign and domestic policy.
