Sasse told visitors to Russia's exhibition at an international property and investment trade fair in this German city on Monday, “We have about 9,000 members in the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and we all want the sanctions against Russia to be lifted, enabling business relations between our countries to develop further.”
Sanctions as a foreign policy tool do not always produce the desired effect, Sasse said. “Sanctions create uncertainty in business prospects. This is a political tool and not a business tool,” he added.
Russia has always been one of the market leaders in property investment, Sergey Cheryomin, a minister in the Moscow government administration and head of its Department for Foreign Economic Activity and International Relations, told visitors, noting Russia's traditional dominant presence at the exhibition and the lure of public-private partnership projects.
Bavaria is considered one of Moscow’s major trading partners. First exchanges of delegations took place at the end of the 1980s. In 1991, the two sides signed a cooperation protocol laying the foundation for future partnership between Russia’s capital and Germany’s largest federal state.
Priority areas of cooperation between Moscow and Bavaria include high technology and innovations, transport, medicine and medical equipment, nano- and biotechnology, culture, sports, and youth exchanges.
