Trade and economic relations between Russia and Sweden are staying stable. In 1918, Sweden became the first western country to supply agricultural equipment for the Russian Federation. In the Soviet years, such well-known Swedish companies as De Laval, Tetra Pak, and Volvo established at the Russian market. Today more than 500 companies with Swedish participation are registered in the Russian Federation, most of them manufacturing companies. Well known Swedish companies Atlas Copco, Epiroc, SKF and many others make a significant contribution to the development of the Russian economy. Swedish companies steadily occupy leading positions in comparison with the other investors to Russia by the volume of the direct investments to the Russian economy. IKEA, for example, is the largest private foreign investor in Russia. The investment fund East Capital is the largest institutional investor in the Russian securities.
For the Russian Federation, it is of great importance to attract, together with Swedish investments, advanced technologies and innovations, the experience of increasing production efficiency and forming a circular economy.

The main event of the seminar was a panel discussion, which raised various issues of bilateral trade and economic relations. The participants of the discussion expressed various suggestions for establishing more dense and effective business contacts between the Swedish and Russian participants of foreign economic activity – from the need to integrate Russia into the European Economic Community to solving problematic issues related to the low level of organization of small and medium enterprises in Russia, the presence of corruption and low legal protection of private property.

According to the general opinion of all the participants of the discussion, it is necessary to increase the awareness of the Swedish business community about Russia and the existing investment opportunities in Russia in order to develop mutually beneficial bilateral trade and economic relations.
