    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The Russo-British Chamber of Commerce (RBCC) calls on the two countries' leaders to renew efforts to find a common language in facilitating bilateral trade, investment and cultural relations, Roger Munnings, the chairman of the RBCC Board of Directors, said Wednesday.

    "It's our hope that these relationships are important… We wish our senior political leaders renew some of their commitment to try to find a common language [to facilitate trade, investment and cultural Russian-UK ties]," Munnings said at the RBCC RussiaTALK Investment Forum in Moscow.

    The forum, in its 12th year in 2016, was conceived as a platform for the dialogue between business and government. This year's agenda includes the future of Russian-British trade relations, economic and business climate in Russia and the United Kingdom, investment in the industrial sector and potential of the Russian IT and communications industry.

    The event sees the participation of Prince Michael of Kent, BP Vice President Peter Charow, Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs President Alexander Shokhin, Head of Sales and Marketing Department of Orange Business Services in Russia & CIS David Holden among others.
