RUSSIA–FRANCE

15:00-16:15 Pavilion G, Conference Hall G5
Most areas of Russian–French economic cooperation require planning and a long-term view of investment, with the strategic approach taken by France’s Total to Russia as a prime example. Could France become a ‘window to Europe’ for Russian investment? How can economic bilateral cooperation be expanded to joint operations in global markets? What are the new horizons for business collaboration given the recent French election results? Are there any prospects for lifting mutual trade and financial restrictions and how is that going to affect producers in both countries?
