On the road to SPIEF 2023: Russia—India Business Forum to be held in New Delhi
As part of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum’s foreign events programme, the Russia—India Business Forum: Strategic Partnership for Development and Growth will be held in the Indian capital, New Delhi, on 29–30 March.
Competition between technology standards and ecosystems is growing ever fiercer in the global economy. The purpose of the Forum is to discuss opportunities for creating high-tech alliances in different areas: IT, cybersecurity, industry and manufacturing, smart cities, transport, logistics and healthcare, and to support Russian companies as they refocus on new markets.
“The Russia–India cooperation format is one of the drivers of region-wide efforts to improve the architecture of inter-state relations in the Asia–Pacific Region (APR). The Forum is designed to strengthen business ties between the Russian and Indian business communities, to support Russian businesses entering the Indian market and to acquaint Indian partners with specific export offers,” said Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation.
“India is one of Russia’s most important trade and economic partners, and the potential for growth in trade between our countries is very high. As part of the Forum, the Russian Export Center will be carrying out a high-tech business mission, in which over 20 Russian companies from the IT sector, business process management, mechanical engineering, construction, energy and medicine will be taking part. A number of Russian companies have products and solutions that are unique and often unrivalled throughout the world. The REC will be arranging B2B negotiations for them with potential Indian buyers and partners,” said Veronika Nikishina, General Director of the Russian Export Center.
Representatives of Russian and Indian government agencies, commercial and industrial organizations will be taking part in the event.
The focus of the ‘Technological Alliances in the Greater Eurasia’ plenary session will be the question of how to perfect cooperation between Russia and India in high-tech.
Over the course of the two days, panellists will also be discussing an action plan for stakeholders to bolster increased bilateral trade and investment in areas such as smart cities, healthcare, IT and the digitalization of the transport sector.
Forum organizers: the Roscongress Foundation, the Department for External Economic and International Relations of Moscow City Government, the Russian Export Center, the Technological Sovereignty Exports Association, the RUSSOFT Non-Commercial Partnership of Software Developers, the Global Council of Innovation and Industry (GCII), the Invest India National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) and Business Council for Cooperation with India.
