In line with the goals and principles set out by the Deauville Partnership between the G8 and Arab partners, Russia has implemented a number of political, economic, social, humanitarian, and legal steps in support of economic growth of Arab countries – particularly with Russia’s longstanding partners in the region. What more should be done by both the public and private sectors to further foster mutual trade and investment?
An important stage in the development of partner relationships is integrating and developing these relationships among small and medium businesses, especially in Russia’s regions.
The creation of a Russian-Arab bank is key to facilitating joint investments.
I look to the future with optimism. Trade and trust are growing despite the political situation in the Arab world.
Political stability is the foundation for the development of the economy and the investment climate.
