Investors can rest assured as Russia prepares to inaugurate a new president and the country chooses its development path in politics and economics, presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich said.
“In Russia the government, the president, will be replaced in two weeks; there will be a different configuration of power. But we have passed the principle fork in the road. All plans will be implemented,” Dvorkovich said on Wednesday at the Big Tent forum.
“There is no reason to expect broken promises. All of those companies, all of the investors, entrepreneurs who have recently watched with interest the Russian market, where they can develop a variety of projects and technologies, can rest assured that their opportunities haven’t disappeared, that these possibilities are still here,” Dvorkovich said.
President-elect Vladimir Putin will take the oath of office on May 7. The current president, Dmitry Medvedev, is expected to take up Putin's current post of prime minister on the next day.
