“The difficulty with infrastructure development is not just keeping the pressure on, of course, it is financing it … It is getting that balance between the return on investment and the overall cost for the economy correct. And, private and public partnerships are seen as a very important way of doing this for the future.”

Roger Munnings
Chairman of the Board of Directors, Russo-British Chamber of Commerce; Independent Director, Sistema
