One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas.

The list of investment projects being implemented by Russia and India in the Russian Far East is gradually expanding. The first investment project implemented by an Indian company in the Russian Far East was launched in 2017 and consists of a precious stone cutting and polishing factory in the Free Port of Vladivostok. A total of over USD 7.1 million was invested in the project. In 2019, the Russian Far East saw the launch of a second precious stone cutting and polishing project with USD 5 million in investment. Work is under way on a major Indian project in Kamchatka Territory to develop a coal deposit. An estimated USD 986 million has been invested in that project. India’s interest in the Far East is gaining momentum. In 2019, Vladivostok was visited by a large Indian delegation led by the Indian Minister of Commerce and Industry. This was the largest delegation that the country has ever to Russia ever. Members of the delegation included chief ministers from the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Gujarat, and Goa and representatives from over 100 Indian companies. The most promising sectors for cooperation include mining, petrochemicals, timber processing, and agribusiness. There is also significant potential and mutual interest in cooperation in medicine, education, tourism, and IT in the Russian Far East. Russia and India continue to discuss the possibility of implementing joint projects in the Russian Far East. What new projects funded by Indian capital are planned for the Far East? What instruments and mechanisms will facilitate this development? What previously untapped sectors have potential for cooperation, and how can cooperation be fostered further?
