This second meeting will focus on the prospects for a new strategic partnership between the EU and Russia. The aim will be to explore concrete steps which the Russian and European policy communities might take in order to build a more durable and meaningful partnership.
The conference will opened by the Czech Ambassador to the EU Milena Vicenová. It will be divided into a plenary session with high-level key note speakers, followed by two sessions focusing on political and economic cooperation and prospects for a new strategic framework for the EU-Russia relationship.
