The WRF UK – Russia Bilateral Relations Conference – THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN THE UK!

September 15 @ 10:00 - 19:00

Free

Welcome to the Westminster Russia Forum Bilateral Relations Conference

PLEASE NOTE – WE ARE OVERSUBSRCRIBED FOR THIS EVENT. PLEASE GET IN TOUCH TO BE ADDED TO THE RESERVE LIST.

The Westminster Russia Forum is proud to announce the first of its kind – the United Kingdom’s first and only independent bilateral relations conference.

With official relations between Moscow and London strained we at the WRF believe that despite this there are far more areas of common interest as opposed to political rhetoric! From tourism, education and history to culture / the arts and business as well politics there are many areas in which we can cooperate – the aim of this conference is to explore the state of UK-Russia bilateral relations as well as exploring the possible non state on state avenues in which normal relations can continue to the benefit of all.

As the first event of its kind we are aiming for this conference to set the pace in relations between our two great countries – with a non partisan approach uncommon amongst other Russia focussed organisations this event will bring together political, trade, business, cultural and other stakeholders.
