The development of mutually beneficial economic relations with countries in the Asia-Pacific region is a priority for Russia and strengthening the partnership with Japan – one of the world’s largest financial, economic, and investment centres – is among the most promising. Investment projects, establishing Russian–Japanese enterprises, and jointly promoting goods and services on the markets of third countries are extremely important to businesses in Russia and Japan, and offer a great deal of promise. Recently, as a result of weakness in both economies, there has been a decline in bilateral trade and investment. How can the current difficulties be overcome, and what should be done to diversify trade and economic cooperation between the two countries? What practical steps could be taken to promote relations and bring economic ties to a new level?
