Andrei Fursenko has positively assessed the results of the Russian-US technological symposium held in Stanford on February 17-18
Andrei Fursenko, the Russian minister of education and science, has positively assessed the results of the Russian-US technological symposium held in Stanford on February 17-18. "There is a common ground for exchange of opinions, ideology, and the positions we assume," the minister who was also the Russian co-chairman of the symposium, told RIA Novosti. When speaking at the forum, Mr. Fursenko noted the need to provide reasonable and transparent legal conditions, which, he added, are crucial for any business, particularly foreign, and also to set up friendly infrastructure. Mr. Fursenko also said the conditions should be improved for US business in Russia. "We should provide such conditions when an investor would be facing minimal risks," he said. According to Mr. Fursenko, he has had several business meetings with US hi-tech businessmen. In his turn, William Perry, professor at Stanford University and former US Defense Secretary, who was the US co-chairman of the symposium, told RIA Novosti that the event had helped establish a business atmosphere between Russian and US companies. According to the organizers of the forum, over 300 Russian and US businessmen were attending the forum. Participating in the event was also former US Secretary of State George Schultz, Russia-based Wimm-Bill-Dann CEO David Yakobashvili, representatives of the US-Russian Chamber of Commerce, and the Russian Alfa-Kapital investment fund. The event mostly focused on the Russian-US cooperation in the hi-tech sphere, the role university centers play in training hi-tech specialists, and the government policy in the business sphere. The symposium was a second event of the kind. In January 2004, it gathered over 250 businessmen from Russia and the US.
