Russia was represented by the President of the Chamber of Commerce of the country Sergey Katyrin and Azat Fazlyev, Vice President of Chamber of Commerce RB, who attended the forum representing Bashkortostan.

“Russia made some interesting proposals, in particular, the Agency for Strategic Initiatives — on introducing standards to reduce administrative barriers to business in the BRICS countries. Participants expect to continue the conversation about strengthening economic integration in the states-members, transferring economic cooperation to a qualitatively new level corresponding to external challenges at the upcoming Business Forum in St. Petersburg, which will be held in June, and at the meeting of the Business Council in Ufa.
