EBRD May Invest Between $500 Million-$1 Billion In Russian High tech Sector

Russia | Posted on December 7th, 2009

The announcement comes after the bank's president Thomas Mirow signed a memorandum of understanding with Anatoly Chubais, the chief executive of the Russian Corporation for Nanotechnologies, or Rusnano, a $5 billion government fund to develop a Russian nanotechnology industry.

"Both parties are keen to attract investments to this promising segment of the Russian economy, including through equity funds, export credit agencies, Russian and international financial institutions, as well as private investors," the EBRD said in a press release.
