SINGAPORE, September 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The 6th Russia-Singapore business forum was a success, it was very interesting, Troika Dialog’s Managing Director Anton Rakhmanov told Itar-Tass in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.
“The forum discussed first of all macroeconomic, current situation in global economies, and especially in emerging economies,” he said. “We discussed how to obtain insurance from declining growth in developed countries, which we witness; and the answer is to increase as much as possible foreign trade and existence of mutual integration between Russia and Asian countries.”
“This is why deeper cooperation between Russia and Asia is only natural, because under the growth in Asia, which we witness now, demands highly natural resources,” he continued. “Russia is ready to supply these resources.”
“This year’s forum featured over 400 businesses and officials, and in the very beginning of the forum’s history six years ago its audience made 40 people only,” Rakhmanov said. “The forum is attracting more and more attention.”
Traditionally, the forum features high-ranking officials from Russia and Singapore, business elites of the both countries as well of the CIS and Asia. This year’s event featured Sberbank’s CEO German Gref, Troika Dialog’s CEO Ruben Vardanyan, Head of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov and Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew.
