It is vital for the Russian business community to think globally, and not just in terms of bilateral relations along the lines of ‘European Union–Russia’ or ‘Russia–China’. China is very rapidly moving towards international standards. Political decisions related to the development of the green economy are being implemented. This should largely make us view the planet as a whole, and not focus on a political tug of war between China and the European Union — Evgeny Shvarts, Head, Center for Responsible Nature Management of the Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences; Doctor of Geographical Sciences, Distinguished Ecologist of the Russian Federation.
We are talking things over today, and an aspect of this discussion will likely lead to us identifying some shared goals, and a shared agenda.
