The article considers the urgent need to switch to a new model of socio-economic development, which should be based on a radically rethought understanding of progress in all its elements and manifestations. The authors show that in the post-covid world, it will increasingly acquire the character of ecosystem progress, not progress focused on ecology, but a set of processes and characteristics combined within every nation. The ecosystem penetrates all critical spheres of life of the state and the nation and generates a synergy effect. Here ecosystem is understood as a business ecosystem applying to states and societies. Its main feature is the synchronized change of all aspects of human life based on the continuous development, application, and multiplication of new technologies, leading to the exponential growth of all elements of society. The transition from the old type of progress to ecosystemic progress will take time and effort. Due to the results achieved in the process, it will constantly accelerate. Those countries which will timely harness the wave of ecosystemic progress and implement this approach earlier than others will benefit more and become the leaders of this competition. They will become models imitated by others and establish a new set of values for human civilization. It is vital that Russia becomes one of the first among these countries.
