Russia & Qatar to deepen cooperation in a bid to boost investment and trade
Russia’s Roscongress Foundation and the Qatar Investment Promotion Agency have inked a document during the Doha Forum that sets up a joint working group for coordination of investment activities and business projects.
The agreement was signed on Sunday, when a Russian delegation held a panel session titled ‘Developing the High-Tech Sector in Russia: Prospects for Venture Investment’ on the sidelines of the forum.
The new body is aimed at identifying promising investment projects in both countries and exchanging information on them, according to CEO of the Roscongress Foundation Alexander Stuglev. It can also facilitate gaining access to Russian and Qatari markets for companies from each country, as well as support and promote initiatives in several areas, including banking, insurance, infrastructure and energy, among others.Also on rt.com Lack of colonial baggage & investment in peace put Russia ahead of other players on African continent, SA minister tells RT
