A pragmatic look at US-Russia trade and investment cooperation two years after the 'reset' button was pressed. Russia's entry into the WTO as the driving factor for the 'reset', and for the implementation of high-priority initiatives. Priority sectors: high-tech, transport and infrastructure, energy, mechanical engineering and aviation, construction, financial services, and more. Basic trade agreement as the foundation for the 'reset', and as the cornerstone for a strategic economic partnership between Russia and the United States. 1) Are the two governments ready to begin negotiations over a new format for basic U.S.-Russia trade agreement? What will the agreement contain and which areas will it cover? 2) Which institutions for stimulating bilateral investment do businesses need? 3) In which areas do projects warrant careful attention and special support from the government? 4) How to transform traditional economic partnership into innovative cooperation? Building an innovation bridge.
