During his visit to Mumbai from March 15-16, 2017, Deputy Prime Minister Trutnev met prominent industry representatives, paid a visit to the Special Notified Zone for diamond trading and attended a business event which provided him an opportunity to interact
with Indian businessmen interested in exploring engagement with Russia’s Far-East Region.
On March 17, 2017, Deputy Prime Minister Trutnev held a meeting with Hon'ble External Affairs Minister in New Delhi. During the talks, both leaders discussed issues related to further strengthening of trade & investment cooperation between India and the regions
of the Russian Far East. Thereafter, he addressed a business event which concluded with the signing of an MoU between Invest India and the Far East Investment and Export Agency. This was followed by an interaction with the media.
The visit is primarily aimed at spreading awareness amongst the Indian business community regarding the opportunities for investment available in the resource-rich Far-Eastern Region of Russia. Given the considerable economic potential and our willingness for
greater interaction with this Region, the visit has enabled further consolidation of bilateral cooperation in the areas of mining, diamond processing, infrastructure (ports etc), agriculture and agro-processing.
