VOLOGDA, June 4. /TASS/. American companies may be interested in participation in Russia’s National Projects, President of the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Russia Alexis Rodzianko told TASS on the sidelines of the Fort Ross Dialogue forum in Vologda.
Implementation of commercially viable projects in Russia in such fields as education, healthcare, infrastructure development, international cooperation and export, ecology, entrepreneurship, digital economy may attract the funds of American investors, Rodzianko said.
"American companies, including members of our Chamber of Commerce, work in many of those areas in Russia. Many companies have long been working in Russia, have established ties with partners, have localized production here, and they may be attracted in implementation of projects in this or that field, at least we consider it promising," he emphasized.
