Business Dialogue
Congress Centre, conference hall D4

Russian-Japanese relations have recently been strengthened as a result of mutually beneficial collaboration under the Eight-Point Cooperation Plan, which was offered to Russia by the Prime Minister of Japan in May 2016 and served to establish high-level contact between the two parties. This development is not only stemming from the traditional sphere of oil and gas: cooperation is branching out. There are new collaborative projects in spheres such as medicine, urban planning, infrastructure and agriculture. Over recent years, the main focus of Russian-Japanese cooperation has been on IT projects and the digital economy. What new business models must we create to further strengthen Russian-Japanese cooperation? How can the digital economy help facilitate growth for both countries?
