and Slovenia share a long-standing friendship. Scientific contacts have always
been active, especially when it comes to humanities. It was fostered by
similarities in the Russian and Slovenian languages. Over 200 Slovenian
companies operate in
60 regions of Russia. There are promising projects in energy, transport
infrastructure, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, and other industries.
Naturally, cooperation in medicine and healthcare has become of primary
importance this year. I am confident that this seminar will help strengthen
ties between members of Slovenian and Russian business communities and find new
points of growth for companies of both countries. At the same time, the
memorandum the Roscongress Foundation and the SPIRIT Slovenia Agency signed
will give an impetus to further cooperation between our organizations in
holding online and offline events in the future,» noted CEO and Chairman of
