The article discusses the strategic priorities of the development of industry and, in particular, mechanical engineering in the face of unprecedented sanctions. The authors substantiate that the development of the machine-building industry is the key to the strategy of economic development of the whole country, despite the fact that enterprises have faced a complex of systemic problems: insufficient investment, capital outflow, the formation of an unstable export-import trade flow and loss of market share. The article substantiates the further strengthening of development problems and difficulties in creating new jobs, income growth, innovation and emerging multiplier effects in view of the ongoing tax burden, political-institutional and unfavorable sanctions conditions for the machine-building industry and the inflation of interest rates. The analysis showed that the main factors limiting the development of mechanical engineering and the industry as a whole are not the existence of sanctions as such, but the uncertainty of the economic situation, insufficient demand for products, lack of financial resources, despite the fact that the industry will experience significant growth in the forecast period. The authors propose to use a matrix of prospects for the development of the machine-building industry, taking into account social and environmental responsibility, based on which it is possible to determine strategic priorities and ensure long-term industrial growth under sanctions.
