As part of the economic block of Russia’s cooperation with Muslim countries, on June 8 at 15:00 (Moscow time) a series of online interviews with Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassadors of the OIC countries in Russia and representatives of business will be held on the topic: “The Impact of Coronavirus Infection COVID-19 on the Economy of the OIC Countries (G-to-B)”.
The first guest of the virtual studio will be Mr. Mohammad Wahid Supriyadi, the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia to Russia.
The main Economic event of the Strategic Vision Group “Russia – Islamic World” – International Economic Summit “KazanSummit 2020” – has been postponed to 2021. However, economic cooperation with countries of the Islamic world continues. In this regard, the Investment Development Agency of the Republic of Tatarstan is launching a project involving meetings with heads of diplomatic missions of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states.
“The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the global and Russian economy is undoubtedly obvious. All major countries have already defined strategies to counteract the existing difficulties. Now more than ever, it is necessary to support each other and share experiences. Summit “Russia – Islamic World”: KazanSummit” is not only an annual three days of intensive work, but also a year-round platform for cooperation between Russian regions and countries of the Islamic world, which in the current circumstances has gained a new role. Today, against the background of so-called “infodemic”, the style of information consumption is changing – the need for reliability of the information disseminated is increasing.
We invite friends and participants of the Summit of past years to get first-hand information. We thank our dear Ambassadors for their participation and invite all those interested in stabilizing the economic situation and strengthening interaction with Islamic countries to join the broadcast”, Talia Minullina, the Head of the Investment Development Agency of the Republic of Tatarstan, said.
The first webisode will be opened by Mr. Mohammad Wahid Supriyadi, the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia to Russia. This year Russia and Indonesia celebrate the 70th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations. The remarkable date is a great opportunity not only to sum up the results of the path we have travelled together, but also to outline plans for the future.
During the webinar the parties will discuss the economic development of countries against the background of COVID-19 coronavirus infection, measures taken to support business in the current environment, the most popular specialties and much more.
Participation in the event is free and will be broadcast in English on Tatarstan’s investment portal.
