Business Dialogue
Pavilion G, conference hall G6

The interest shown by Russian and German businesses in implementing joint projects remains strong, as the position paper adopted in January 2019 by the German Eastern Business Association demonstrates. This document focuses on the future development of close economic cooperation in 15 areas of the economy, ranging from digitalization to cooperation in space. Representatives of Russian and German business communities will share their experience and exchange views on how modern, innovative enterprises in Russia and Germany can work together to enhance their competitiveness at the international level, thus giving a new impetus to the idea of a common European economic space.
