|A glance in the future — prospects and relations|
President of «Continent USA» media
- Peter Leonidovich! What do You think about prospects of development
of U.S.-Russian relations in the new XXI century, before the Ninth
Annual Meeting of the Members and Board of the U.S.-Russian Business
Council, which will take place on the 4-5 of October in Washington?
- The beginning of the third millennium and the new XXI century may be
characterized as the beginning of forming of fundamentally new model of
development of world global geopolitical system, which means
establishment of new international and interstate relations, change of
forces and resources balance and the creation of new terms of the world
2000 elections and election of V.Putin to the post of the President of
the Russian Federation and 2001 elections and election George Bush to
the post of the President of USA predict new stages of development of
political, economic, finance and military relations of two great
Positive tendencies in the U.S.-Russia relations have become possible
because of the firm position of the President of USA George Bush Jr.
and the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and the Joint Statement made
in Genoa on 22nd July 2001 about attracting of U.S. and Russian
business community to elaboration of suggestions illustrates it.
In connection with preparation of materials to the Ninth Annual Meeting
of the Members and Board of Directors of the Council with the theme of
meeting "Russia in global economy: status and projects" and to the
future negotiations on the top level between the Presidents of USA and
Russia George Bush Jr. and Vladimir Putin it seems to me as a necessary
point to discuss the following suggestions, which can assist in the
improving of the economic situation both in USA and in Russia on the
mutually profitable bilateral long-term basis.
In USA it will allow:
- to turn from decrease towards increase of production growth rate and
- to increase export into Russia of a wide range of technical products,
technological equipment, production processing complexes, etc.
In USA this steps will lead to an increase of Gross Domestic Product,
stabilization at the finance and stock markets, growth of dollar rate
towards euro and also they can become a guarantee of stability of
economy. USA can become Russia's basic trade partner and increase the
turnover of the companies which production and/or services is
manufactured on the territory of USA or not but are launched to the
market under the USA mark.
Increase of the USA export in Russia will not cause any objections
because, first, such equipment and such machine-building kinds of
production have not been manufactured in Russia earlier and still are
not - it follows that it will not be any competition there, and second,
out-of-date by 60-80% in Russia production facilities do require an
urgent substitute and otherwise easily can be the reason of decrease of
production in fuel and energy, metallurgical, chemical etc. industries
quite soon with all the consequences undesirable to Russia.
