Economic Dialogue "Russia"
In 2018, the Center for Political Analysis and Information Security, in partnership with the Medium-Sized Business Association of the CDU (CDU MIT) of the Tübingen district and the Liberal Medium Business Association (LIM) of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg (Germany), launched the international project "Economic Dialogue "Russia".
Within the framework of the project, a series of German-Russian conferences for SMEs is being prepared and held with the aim of intensifying bilateral economic cooperation, balanced and unbiased presentation of investment opportunities of Germany and Russia.
The relevance of the project stems from the fact that the German economy is in the process of fundamental changes, and the German middle class is facing new existential challenges. At the same time, German companies come up with the growing number of issues in the countries of the BRICS group, whose representatives often perceive Germany as a place of stagnation. In turn, Russia, on the one hand, is an extremely rich country, promising for doing business, on the other hand, most German companies do not know about its potential and, as a result, cannot take advantage of the prospects that the Russian market opens up for them.
“The Economic Dialogue “Russia” project includes conferences, podium discussions, round tables and workshops, offering all interested parties an open independent platform. During productive discussions representatives of various industries will identify key points of interaction and develop a strategy of cooperation for German medium business with partners from Russia.
Being not limited by the ideology of a particular party, experts, representatives of the state government and the business community, within the framework of the project, will present the local business customs to the participants from Russia and Germany. They will talk about current municipal, regional and federal programs and tools to support investors, and answer all questions of foreign colleagues.
The objective of the project is to present as concretely as possible the actual state of affairs in the SME sector in Germany and Russia, to talk about the opportunities for entrepreneurial activity, and also to help form a personal impression of the prospects of the Russian market for German business, and of the German market for Russian business.
The 1st event on the "Economic Dialogue "Russia" Project took place on 7-8 November 2019 in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg.
