Italy is this year’s SPIEF Guest of Honour. Leveraging a strong foundation of bilateral ties spurred on by enhanced industrial and economic cooperation, a new model of partnership is flourishing. Italian business is increasingly forthcoming in showcasing and sharing with Russian partners its expertise and world renowned know-how in the fields of mechanics, high technology, energy, agro-industry, infrastructure, and finance. What steps should be taken to continue and even accelerate the positive momentum of economic cooperation in business and finance?

Giovanni Bazoli
Russia is a wonderful basis for exports, as the Russian internal consumer market has great potential.

Our task is to start cooperating with a large number of small and medium Italian businesses, as opposed to working with large companies only.
