The Roscongress Foundation and Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce (SRCIC) have signed a cooperation agreement. The document was signed by Roscongress Foundation Director Alexander Stuglev and SRCIC Executive Chairman and Founder Jean-Guy Carrier.
The agreement focuses on the two organizations interacting in establishing effective communication methods between the professional and business communities of the Russian Federation and other countries that are part of the initiative to build the Silk Road project – a transport route between the East and West.
Roscongress Foundation Director Alexander Stuglev noted that an agreement had been reached to provide mutual advisory, information, and expert support, jointly organize specialized sessions, and also exchange delegations as part of the events held by the companies – the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Eastern Economic Forum, and International Arctic Forum in Russia as well as the International Investment Summit of Silk Road Countries in China.
SRCIC Chairman and Founder Lu Jianzhong said: “Cooperation between the two organizations is an important step in establishing the ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative. Jointly with the Roscongress Foundation and 63 national chambers of commerce that are part of the SRCIC, we will strengthen our ties, support practical cooperation, promote a cultural exchange, and contribute to prosperity both in the Silk Road region and throughout the world”.
