Putin meets with representatives of UK business
Russian President Vladimir Putin invited the UK business to take part in implementation of National Projects at a meeting with representatives of the UK business community working in Russian.
"Hundreds of billions of dollars are planned to be invested into development of the most important sectors of the economy and the social sphere within the framework of National Projects in Russia," the head of state said.
"I do not misspoke, investments of hundreds of billions of dollars are exactly meant. I am confident your companies could take part in this work also. The market is fairly large," he noted.
Putin added that implementation of national projects will have a comprehensive effect for dynamic growth of the country, which will open significant opportunities for business growth, including the business from the United Kingdom.
"Accumulated British investment into the Russian economy is 23.8%, and Russian investment into the British economy is over $11 billion," TASS cited the Russian leader as saying.
