Over the past five years we have been cooperating with Russia in cutting-edge technologies, we exchanged students and interns, <...> we have worked with the most advanced companies and relied largely on the experience of our Russian colleagues. <…> As for the commerce, it is about developing the culture of our production, our science, raising the level of education of our personnel, and this should be mutual. We need to follow the basic principle of trading, which is a clearer system of market state indicators that would be developed based on modern technologies. This will allow us to avoid many of the conflicts that are now arising in business. We do not have enough knowledge about each other; this is perhaps our most important challenge — Rodrigo Quevedo, Director General, Robotics Lab.
Trust can also be built in technology, and it might be a good place to start. For these purposes the Government of the Russian Federation, by order of the President [Vladimir Putin — Ed.], established the International Fund for Technical Development, among other things, to finance projects outside the Russian Federation. One of our priority focuses is the countries of Latin America, Central America, and the Caribbean. I believe that such cooperation will actually lead to that very trust, it is through technology that we will be able to strengthen it — Vadim Kulikov, Representative of the Board of Directors, RTF.
