SYNERGY FOR GROWTH
Organisers and Partners
2017 has seen growth in trade between Russia and the UK for the first time since the three-year recession. It is too early to say that all negative trends are a thing of the past, but the positive dynamics found in our trade and economic relations, together with the fact that we share a mutual interest in many industries, demonstrates the necessity for and potential of increasing cooperation.

We expect that the Third Russian-British Business Forum, as an open platform for dialogue, will make a significant contribution towards creating an atmosphere of trust and understanding today, and will help lay the foundation for effective cooperation post-BREXIT.
Boris Abramov
Trade Representative of Russia in the UK
A probably unforeseen outcome of US and European sanctions against the Russian Federation has been to stimulate an acceleration of the modernisation of the Russian economy and, together with lower oil prices, a diversification away from its traditional economic pillars of oil and gas and metals and minerals production.

Within the sanctions regimes, there are numerous opportunities for profitable investment and trade with Russia in assisting with these developments for foreign companies with the right competencies, experience and skills.
Roger Munnings CBE
Chairman of the Board of Directors, Russo-British Chamber of Commerce
The United Kingdom's private sector post BREXIT will be required to create competitive advantage in new markets, and to deepen existing. Russian imports stood at $ 102bn in the first half of 2017, Russia's first full-recovery year. The UK can come alongside Germany and the Netherlands in its share. Understanding of the issues and opportunities is therefore essential.

The upcoming Russian-British Business Forum presents the UK's private sector with the chance to engage, address challenges, and in doing so allow Government to build on a new tier of constructive dialogue in an important bilateral relationship.
