Foreign Investors Expect Better Russia-EU Ties

DAVOS, January 24 (RIA Novosti) – Foreign investors, who met with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in Davos on Wednesday, expressed their concern about worsening ties between Russia and the EU, Russian deputy premier Arkady Dvorkovich said.

“The investors said they were worried by the fact that ties between Russia and the European Union show little improvement or even get worse. This is not the best environment to work in. Everyone expects constructive relations and hopes that the situation will get better,” Dvorkovich told journalists on Wednesday evening.

He said that despite the issues, the opinion of foreign investors about Russia improves.

“In 2007 only 7-8 percent of companies [working in Russia] said Russia’s investment climate was good, but now the figure stands at 35-37 percent,” the deputy premier said.
