Over the past few years, a number of changes have influenced both the Russian economy and the world market. We face a new challenge: ‘2030 is coming tomorrow. So, what should we do?’ The plenary session, the forum’s central event, will kick-off with a debate about this global question,” said Veronika Nikishina, REC’s chief executive.During the forum, topics under discussion include the future of Russian non-power exports in the post-COVID world, the impact of exports on the economic development of regions, Russian exports through electronic commerce, measures to support the export of infrastructure projects, and the extension of logistics corridors.
In addition, such issues as the chances of entering the markets of Serbia, Turkey, China, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Africa, European and CIS countries, green production experiences, exports to third-country markets, and the protection of the rights of Russian exporters will be discussed. This time, the forum will exist both physically at the Сongress Сentre of the World Trade Centre and online. The final number of participants depend on how badly the pandemic is raging. Discussions and seminars will be webcast, and pre-registration and the programme are available on the REC website.In order to promote useful links and business contacts, a multi-country business mission with representatives from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, buyers, importers and retailers from the CIS countries, the European Union, the Middle East and Gulf States has been organised.
