Taking European and Russian Relations Forward
Source: BusinessEurope via Confederation of Finnish Industries
From the Introduction:
The trade and economic ties between the EU and Russia are long-standing and expanding, and the two partners consider their relationship a strategic one. Russia is the 3rd largest trading partner of the EU with 45% of Russia’s imports, 55% of its exports and 75% of its foreign direct investment (FDI) originate from the EU...
Overall, business recognises that there is good will from both partners to further enhance their relationship. Significant challenges have nevertheless resulted in delays in the delivery of concrete results. It is indicative, for instance, that it took 18 years of negotiations for Russia to become member of the WTO and negotiations on the New EU-Russia Agreement to replace the PCA have already taken several years since the automatic extension of the initial period of the PCA in 2008.
The purpose of this strategy paper is to assess and make recommendations for taking forward the European and Russian bilateral relationship.
