On October 5, 2017, the ceremony of signing an agreement on cooperation between the Roscongress Foundation and the Swiss-Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry took place during the Russian energy week (the Swiss Russian Forum Foundation). The document was signed to foster effective communication between expert communities as well as business and political circles of the Russian Federation and the Swiss Confederation.
The parties agreed on cooperation in a number of areas in the process of organizing joint events aimed at strengthening economic ties between the countries.
The President of the Swiss-Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Béatrice G. Lombard-Martin noted that the representatives of Swiss business circles attribute great importance to the development of mutual trade with Russia.
“Being a rather small country, Switzerland takes the ninth place in the volume of investment into the Russian Federation and today within the framework of the Russian Energy Week 2017 we proudly sign this agreement. As the world leader in the field of innovation, Switzerland has the necessary resources and technology and is ready to support the development of innovative solutions in the field of new energy sources,” emphasized Ms. Lombard-Martin.
A new opportunity for fruitful cooperation on the issues of further development of Russian-Swiss dialogue will present itself in the Russian House Residence in Davos during the World Economic Forum (WEF) on January 22–26, 2018.
