The Russian Direct Investment Fund, or RDIF, has prepared ten projects in agriculture, road construction, logistics and other economic sectors for US investors, according to Kirill Dmitriev, head of the fund.

“We are already dealing with a number of leading US funds on these projects and we see significant interest,” Dmitriev said.

In late January, Daniel Sotler, head of global investment strategies for Renaissance Capital, said that international investors are again showing interest in Russia because of its economic recovery. At the same time, the Qatar Investment Authority announced that it would invest two billion dollars in Russian projects.

In December 2016, Dmitriev spoke about the establishment of a Russian-Japanese investment fund with up to a billion dollars in investments. “Now we are discussing more than 20 projects, the first of which we hope to implement in the next six months,” he said.
