    "The human capital in the country is absolutely outstanding. We see that within our own business," Colebourne said.

    He said that Russian economy had overcome a period of volatility and was now stable, stressing that there was opportunity for growth. According to Colebourne, investment in agriculture and food-processing had been most notably on the rise and would continue to be "a theme," but other sectors, including light manufacturing, were also promising.
