The Russian government, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, the business circles of Russia and Turkey, business associations are working to create opportunities for cooperation between our countries. On the sidelines of the forum, issues of attracting Turkish business to the regions of Russia were raised; representatives of the business of Turkey and the regions of Russia spoke.

“We are not experiencing major sales downturns as our segment is business class. For 30 years of work in Russia, we have seen many crises and we had no thoughts of leaving the Russian market. We come out of each crisis stronger and stronger and see opportunities in Russia that are not in the US or the UK,” said Khairi Tokman, Deputy Director of AntYapi, a construction investment company.

He informed that the total investment amounted to 450 billion rubles and 120 billion is in the portfolio.

At the forum, a Cooperation Agreement was signed between the Russian-Turkish Dialogue Association and the Association of Industrial Parks of Russia, which was presented by Maxim Paznikov.

“We are looking for new growth points and creating business opportunities in Russia. You can use any of our business resources. Need help? Write to us, - said Alexander Che. - The Association is in close dialogue with Turkish investors on the one hand and Russian regions on the other.”

The Russian-Turkish Dialogue Association was established on the initiative of the Russian-Turkish Working Group (RSPP) and the international publication “Russian Business Guide”. It brings together Russian and Turkish business circles with the aim of developing international business interaction, building communications and connections aimed at promoting investment projects and trade and economic relations.
