One of the RSPP international cooperation areas is Russia – US business relationships development. In June 2008 RSPP and U.S. Chamber of Commerce established the Russian-American Business Dialogue. Since 2009 the Russian-American Business Council established by the instruction of the Government of the Russian Federation operates under the aegis of the RSPP. One of the most important dialogue platforms are annual business roundtables “Russia – North America” organized by the RSPP in the framework of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).
