As the interlocutor emphasized, Chinese companies have the greatest investment resource.

"But I would also mention other countries. Yesterday's successful visit of the president to a number of Arab countries, the largest Arab countries, also shows the possibility of cooperation, especially since these countries also have a colossal investment resource, moreover, they invest significantly in Russia," Kostin said.

At the same time, there may be some "pauses" in such cooperation due to the pressure exerted by the United States, he said, adding that "in general, these countries are ready to invest."

"Today, it is also known that the volume of trade with the Emirates has increased several times in recent years. Therefore, these are also our natural partners, in addition, both Turkish and Indian companies - they have investment resources and interest in cooperation with us," said the head of VTB.

He also noted that foreign investors are certainly interested in energy industries, but not only.

"This includes agriculture, the food industry, and high technology, which is well developed in Russia, so it's anything. The automotive industry – look at how many Chinese cars we already have in our country," he added.

According to the latest data from Chinese customs, the trade turnover between Russia and China in January-November 2023 increased by 26.7%, amounting to a record $218.17 billion.

Also, the Russian leader and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud discussed cooperation between the two countries within the framework of OPEC+.

During his visit to the UAE, Putin said that bilateral relations between Russia and the United Arab Emirates have reached an unprecedentedly high level.
