The WRF UK – Russia Bilateral Relations Conference – THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN THE UK!
September 15 @ 10:00 - 19:00
Welcome to the Westminster Russia Forum Bilateral Relations Conference
The First of its Kind in the UK!
PLEASE NOTE – DUE TO AVAILABILITY OF RUSSIAN SPEAKERS / UK GENERAL ELECTION AND MAKE UP OF THE NEW PARLIAMENT WE WILL BE POSTPONING THIS EVENT TO SEPTEMBER – MEANING IT WILL BE BIGGER AND BETTER WITH GREAT CONTENT. WE ARE LOOKING FOR COMMERCIAL AND MARKETING PARTNERS AND WELCOME ALL SPEAKER SUBMISSIONS!
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 stained we at the WRF believe that despite this there are far more areas of common interest as opposed to the 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.
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.
