RC-Investments Foundation, the Roscongress Foundation’s investment platform, and the Association of European Businesses (AEB) signed a Memorandum of Cooperation at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2021.
The document calls for collaboration in the work of the Investment Portal of Russian Regions Investinregions.ru. In particular, they will promote projects on the portal that require external funding among potential investors who are members of the AEB.
At present, Investinregions.ru contains information about 218 projects valued at more than RUB 1.5 trillion. All the projects have undergone a preliminary examination by RC-Investments Foundation and, for the convenience of potential investors, are ranked according to different categories: by region, industry, form, and the amount of funding needed. The portal also provides information about specific measures to support investment projects in each region of the Russian Federation.
«Our job is to create an effective tool to promote promising projects located in various regions of Russia. Each project that is implemented means new jobs, increased revenues to local tax budgets, and, as a result, an overall improvement in the quality of life in the country. Attracting resources from the AEB will make it possible to take a significant step in this direction,» RC-Investments Foundation Director Alexander Shatirov said.
«We are interested in strengthening economic relations between Russia and European countries. This can be done through organizing information exchanges and attracting investments, including for projects that are being implemented today in the Russian regions,» AEB CEO Tadzio Schilling said.
As part of the Memorandum, the parties intend to regularly exchange information, support common investment and business initiatives, and analyse the results of joint activities.
