India & Russia: Expanding Bonds is a sumptuously illustrated book delineating the enduring friendship between two great nations. In particular, it looks at the vibrant and ever-expanding economic ties between the two large and rapidly growing economies. Close political, economic and cultural links with Russia have been a high priority in India’s foreign policy and shaped its international engagement over the years. India has learnt much from the Russian economic model while also benefitting from Russian assistance in its industrial development. This engaging narrative highlights the evolution of the Indo-Russian bilateral relationship as both nations opened up their economies and embarked on a new development paradigm. Both countries emphasized policies to encourage entrepreneurial ventures in each other’s economies and continue to embrace a widening range of areas of cooperation, including defence, science and technology, and space.
The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has been conscious of the importance of a strong and strategic partnership between India and Russia and believes that robust economic and commercial engagement is key to furthering ties. CII is facilitating the shift from traditional spheres of business with Russia to new and emerging areas and will continue to actively build on its multiple initiatives, playing an integral role in further cementing the bilateral friendship.


The Confederation of Indian Industry is a non-governmental, not-for-profit, industry-led and industry-managed organization, playing a proactive role in India’s development process. Founded in 1895, India’s premier business association has over 7, 400 members and an indirect membership of over 100,000 enterprises from around 250 national and regional sectoral industry bodies.
CII charts change by working closely with Indian government on policy issues, and enhancing competitiveness and business opportunities for industry through a range of specialized services and strategic global linkages. Extending its agenda beyond business, it assists industry to identify and execute corporate citizenship programmes.
With sixty-four offices, including nine Centres of Excellence, in India, and seven overseas offices as well as institutional partnerships with 300 counterpart organizations in 106 countries, CII serves as a reference point for Indian industry and the international business community
