Business Roundtable
Pavilion 5, Business Breakfast Hall 5.4

There is great potential to build on recent discussions to strengthen economic relations between Russia and the Latin American and Caribbean states. What are some of the key sectors where Russia and Latin America can jumpstart trade and investment? How might BRICS economies coordinate greater trade and investment in the region to the benefit of all? Can the use of an integrated currency and independent payments systems become a mobilizing factor for stable partnerships?
