Programme

Russia–Japan

25 May, 16:30–17:45
Business Dialogue
Pavilion F, Conference Hall F3

In May 2016, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe proposed an eight-point cooperation plan to President Vladimir Putin. More than 100 joint projects were made part of the plan, and many of them have already moved from the signing to practical implementation stage. Given the potential of mutually beneficial economic partnership between the two countries, further development of these projects and broadening of the collaboration beyond the defined projects can be expected. This business dialogue will address the achievements and current issues in Russo-Japanese cooperation under the eight-point plan, and present opportunities for doing business in new areas.
