Business Dialogue
Congress Centre, conference hall D1

Trade and economic relations between Italy and Russia do not exist in a vacuum, and are affected by shifts in the global environment. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic created a new global reality and had a direct effect on all aspects of economic life. The gradual process of overcoming the pandemic and lifting related sanitary and administrative restrictions have created new challenges, as well as new opportunities. How can Italian and Russian companies find common ground to expand trade and commercial relations? What is the key to effective cooperation and mitigating destabilizing factors? How can a positive agenda and new tools for fostering cooperation be developed?
