"Today, the Republic of Tatarstan provides significant opportunities for international cooperation. The openness of our region, combined with stable, profitable and transparent working conditions, makes business and investment climate of Tatarstan both sustainable and attractive. In energy, IT, engineering, light and food industry, medicine and other sectors with international partners, a large reserve has already been created and there are promising new areas of growth. Traditionally, relations with British colleagues are of special importance for us. I am confident that such events as the Russian-British Business Forum contribute to the developing our relations and achieving their great potential in terms of trade, investment and research activities"
