The Russian delegation is headed by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who will hold talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The delegation comprises of officials from Roscosmos, Rosneft and the government of Astrakhan.

Russian companies and regions will participate in the Vibrant Gujarat Global Trade Show, which opens on Jan. 9, in Gandhinagar, Russia’s Trade Representative in India Yaroslav Tarasyuk told TASS on Jan. 8.

“This is a major economic event in India, which will take place on Jan. 9-13,” he said. “The forum and exhibition will feature representatives of more than 20 countries, including more than ten Russian companies and organizations - the Emergencies Ministry, Sibur, Novatek, Rosneft, Roskosmos, Rosatom, Rostech, Schwabe, and others, as well as representatives of the Russian regions.”

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin will lead the Russian delegation, which will include representatives of Tatarstan and the Astrakhan region, which has a long-standing partnership with Gujarat. Russia will have a big pavilion at the exhibition, and a Russian-Indian business forum is due on Jan. 11.

Rogozin is expected to have standalone talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This will be the first high-level talks between Russia and India since the 2016 annual summit in Goa.

“The promising directions for development of the trade and economic cooperation between Russian companies and the Gujarat State - a most developed region in India - could be the oil and gas and chemical industries, pharmaceuticals, automotive, defence industry, shipbuilding, and development of ‘smart cities’,” the Russian official said.

The Vibrant Gujarat forum, the biggest regional forum in India, takes place every two years. Organizers say, its objective is to attract the leading experience in business and investment, to favor development of the region’s scientific and technical base.
