Will Government "Tourism" in Russia Bring Real Economic Results?



Erjavec and Lavrov will, according to the Slovenian Foreign Ministry, debate bilateral cooperation over lunch and sign a plan of consultations between both foreign ministries for the period 2014-2015.

Erjavec will however first meet the co-chair of the intergovernmental commission, Russian Communications and Mass Media Nikolai Nikiforov to debate cooperation in various areas.

Erjavec and Nikiforov will then visit a travelling exhibition of Slovenian industrial design; Silent Revolutions is on display at the Moscow Design Week.

He will also meet a group of Slovenian businessmen who are visiting Russia to explore business opportunities and representatives of Slovenian companies which are already present on the Russian market.

The Slovenian foreign minister will wrap up his visit to Russia on Thursday, when he takes part in a high-profile Slovenia-Russia business and investment forum organised by the Slovenian agency SPIRIT and its Russian partner MIEPA.

While Russia has been designated one of Slovenia's priority markets offering business opportunities in energy, construction, engineering, automotive industry, IT, telecommunications and tourism, Russian investors are said to be interested in the planned privatisation of Slovenian companies.
