Skolkovo Foundation chairman says new foreign partners expected soon

The foundation chief pointed out that the relations with the US and Great Britain are "more complicated"

VLADIVOSTOK, September 6. /TASS/. Skolkovo Foundation expects new foreign partners in the near future, board chairman Igor Drozdov told TASS on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum on Friday.

"I am confident that such companies will appear. In October, the foundation stone laying ceremony will be held in Skolkovo by Phoenix Contact company, which has annual revenue worth several billions of euro. The construction of a research facility by the Japanese company Fanuc is underway. I think others will follow. The process of establishing relations with potential partners from the US and Britain is more complicated. Nevertheless, such global giants as Boeing and Cisco continue cooperation with Skolkovo Foundation," he said.

The fifth Eastern Economic Forum is being held in Russia’s Vladivostok on September 4-6. Roscongress Foundation is the organizer of the event. TASS news agency is the event’s general information partner, the official photo hosting agency and moderator of the presentation zone focusing on the Russian Far East’s innovation opportunities.
