We are responding to the restrictions imposed from outside not by closing off our economy, but by expanding freedom and making Russia more open.
Russia is open to the world – for economic, scientific and humanitarian cooperation, and for contacts with representatives of civil society and the business community from around the world.
In general, we are not building relations with anyone against anyone else. We are building positive alliances.
Russian companies must take key positions in those sectors and markets that will shape the economic future and the way of life of people in 20-30 years’ time.
In order to overcome the implications of the economic crisis, we need to introduce innovations, we need to do reforms.
The timely measures that we took to support our economy and financial system have worked overall.
The Asia-Pacific region is set to become the main source of growth in global demand for goods and services over the next decade. Even with all the fluctuations occurring in the world, this trend is inevitable.
