RUSSIA–UNITED KINGDOM: TARGETING IMPROVED TRADE AND ECONOMIC RELATIONS FOR A 100-YEAR PARTNERSHIP

10:15-11:30 Pavilion G, Amphitheatre Hall
In spite of political differences on some fronts, economic cooperation between Russia and the United Kingdom continues. It is precisely this ability of businesses to overcome unfavourable external factors that has distinguished Russian–British relationships in recent years. In the absence of a relevant intergovernmental dialogue, the partnership between business communities takes on particular significance. What are the priority areas in developing bilateral relations between Russia and the United Kingdom? What is the best way to advance the business partnership against a background of tough economic and external political conditions? Which potential joint projects could prove the most attractive at present? What steps could the Russo-British Chamber of Commerce take to ensure the development of bilateral trade?

Roger Munnings, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Russo-British Chamber of Commerce
