"Today, many representatives of Russian business are interested, on the one hand, in finding export opportunities and partners abroad. On the other hand, there is a need to increase labour productivity and make it more competitive, which requires the development of technology transfer, acquisition of new knowledge, and finding new ideas and ways to implement them. All this is best supported by strengthening contacts with representatives of the world’s leading economies. London, as one of the world’s main financial centres, provides excellent opportunities here. In addition, the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union generally makes it possible to give a new impetus to foreign economic relations with Russia, allowing us to see additional opportunities for dialogue between Russian and British entrepreneurs."
