HARARE, October 8 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov has expressed confidence that Russia’s investments into Africa will be adequately protected despite instability of some political regimes on the continent.
“If you have fear of everything, no business will ever begin. For businesses to feel comfortable, we take all necessary measures to create such conditions,” he told Itar-Tass during his working visit to Zimbabwe.
He recalled that during the Russian delegation’s visit to South Africa, an agreement of mutual protection of investments was signed.
“We exchanged diplomatic notes on resumption of the intergovernmental commission and we respectively created a business council,” Manturov said. “These instruments and regular contacts between our ministries and companies will at any level and in any political situation support business that is being started or has already been created.”
