MOSCOW, January 29. /TASS/. The results of the first phone conversation between the presidents of Russia and the United States send a positive signal to investors, said Kirill Dmitriev, who heads the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF).
"Placing the emphasis on restoring trade and economic cooperation is very important," he said.
The RDIF CEO said the fund has designed ten Russian-US priority investment projects and will present them to the US partners for a preliminary discussion soon.
