The Russian-German Chamber of Commerce has had a significant role in the development of bilateral relations, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday while congratulating the leadership and members of the industry group on the 25th anniversary of its founding, Regnum reported.
“The chamber is one of the most representative and effective associations of foreign business in Russia. I note the significant role of this trustworthy non-governmental structure in the development of Russian-German trade and economic cooperation, in ensuring the work of German entrepreneurs in Russian markets, as well as in attracting investments from Germany to our country,” the Kremlin press service said, citing Putin’s congratulatory message.
The Russian president noted that primarily thanks to the efforts of the chamber, large-scale projects in various fields were implemented and sizable production facilities of well-known German companies were successfully localized in Russian regions.
Putin stressed that, despite the current difficulties in the global economy, “the responsible and pragmatic activities of the chamber are becoming even more significant.”
He also expressed confidence that the chamber would “continue to help build mutually beneficial ties between the business communities of Russia and Germany.”
