HELSINKI, November 18. /TASS/. Political disagreements between Russia and Western countries should not result in problems for technological cooperation, said Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich who is participating in annual technological conference Slush which opened in the Finnish capital on Tuesday.
“We are taking all effort with our partners from Europe and the United States to stabilize the situation in Ukraine. We have some disagreements, but they should not lead to confrontation, including in science, education and technologies,” Dvorkovich said.
He said that if a foreign company wanted to enter Russia and develop its business there, there will be no obstacles for it to run a business even despite the current situation in the world. “I do not believe that someone who wants to run a business in Russia should wait for something. There are no obstacles for this. We have preferences for companies which are engaged in research and developments, there is a demand for them. If waiting, one can lose in competition,” the deputy prime minister noted.
“Sometimes politics can be harmful for business and innovations,” he admitted. Meanwhile, universities frequently turning in innovative centers are beyond political struggle, Dvorkovich added.
