cooperation is steadily developing and this dynamic needs to be maintained.
During 2023, thanks to joint efforts, we also held the Russian-Indian Business
Forum in Delhi and its logical continuation was a similar format within the framework
of the SPIEF 2023 opening day, which resulted in signings with the Small and
Medium Enterprise Development Forum (MSME Development Forum), the Indian
Chamber of International Business (ICIB), the National Coordination and
Investment Promotion Agency of India (Invest India) and the Trade Promotion
Council of India (TPCI). In my opinion, the readiness to comprehensively
support and facilitate the organization of new formats of interaction is an
indicator of interest in dialogue and an opportunity to open new points of
growth between our countries,” said Alexey Valkov.
2024: Business Cooperation for a Better Quality of Life’ retreat will be held
on 13 December in Mumbai. Participants will discuss the role of the financial,
industrial and humanitarian sectors in the process of innovative development of
society and improvement of the quality of life. As part of the business
programme, representatives of Russian government authorities, Russian and
Indian businesses, as well as business and industry associations and media
representatives are invited to the event.
many years, business cooperation between our countries has been based on large
state-owned companies and enterprises. It was they who laid the foundations of
many industries, scientific and technological base of India. However,
medium-sized and technology companies in Russia are now coming to the fore, as
they understand the prospects of setting up their local production facilities
in India, are ready to develop their business here and invest in the Indian
economy. Events such as SPIEF give businesses an opportunity to familiarise
themselves with market conditions, discuss plans and build an effective
strategy,” said Manpreet Singh, president of the Indian
Chamber of International Business.
St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will take place on 5–8 June 2024.
