Daniel Christman, Senior Vice President for International Affairs, U.S. Chamber Of Commerce

Russia has been bidding for the accession to the World Trade Organization since 1993, but still hasn’t achieved this goal. The biggest breakthrough in negotiations was the agreement with the US, signed last November. The United States has been one of the most difficult negotiators for Russia. Why was it so and what other obstacles on the way into the WTO is Russia yet to face? To answer this and other questions concerning trade relations between Russia and the US, our guest today is MR. Daniel Christman.
