The Russian market is still very attractive for investors despite the attempts of certain countries "to show the opposite picture," Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with the SophieCo program aired by the RT television channel on Monday prior to the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).
"Despite certain problems with international economic environment the Russian market is still very attractive," TASS cited him as saying.
According to Peskov, the atmosphere at SPIEF is welcoming every year. Meanwhile, the task of the organizers of the Forum is "to ensure the counterparts that the climate here for investments, for economic cooperation is favorable and comfortable."
"And we are doing our business. Unfortunately, some other countries choose the way of trying to show the opposite picture. I would say those are some signs of unfair competition from their end," the spokesman stressed.
Peskov added though that it "does not mean that this Forum is tense," on the contrary, it is "a golden opportunity for them to establish contacts and to continue dialogue with their vis-·-vis in Russia."
