We are proud to announce that Bianki and Partners will participate in the Russia-Africa: Shared Vision 2030 project, and Valentin Bianki is invited as a project expert. The project involves the creation of a key analytical document that describes the current level of interaction between Russia and African countries and also provides an overview of the possible future prospects.
In July 2018, at the BRICS Summit in Johannesburg, Vladimir Putin put forward an initiative to hold the first-ever Russia-Africa Summit. Sochi will host the Summit with numerous heads of state that are expected to attend the event on October 24, 2019. Sochi will also host the Russia-Africa economic forum on October 23-24, 2019. Numerous events prior to the Forum and Summit will be held during 2019.
The Forum is organized by the Roscongress Foundation, and by the agreement with the Foundation and under the aegis of the Integration Expertise LLC a wide range of experts are united to analyze all the aspects of the interaction between Russia and African countries.
Bianki and Partners in this report will cover the aspects of Russian image and Russian reputation capital in Africa. We plan to study the impact of both positive and negative reputation issues (stereotypes, opinions). We will analyze the issues in terms of both Russian companies operating in Africa and representatives of African business and the political elite of the African countries. Demo version of the report can be found on the RAVision website.
