MR. SUKHAREV: Hello, my name is Sukharev.

MR. SUKHAREV: I would like to talk with Mr. Tucker.

MR. TUCKER: Speaking, Mr. Sukharev.
MR. SUKHAREV: Good morning, Mr. Tucker. As you know, leading Russian and American experts have signed a document promoting a new concept of economic relations between our two countries.
MR. TUCKER: Yes, the concept which became known as "Partnership for Progress" is attracting more US investments to the Russian economy.
MR. SUKHAREV: With the purpose of...?
MR. TUCKER: With the purpose of setting up enterprises in the field of consumer goods, production and services.
MR. SUKHAREV: Is the US government participating in the programme?
MR. TUCKER: Yes, it is. The government will create a favourable climate for deliveries of equipment, know-how and licences.
MR. SUKHAREV: I understand that the question is not only of aid in the traditional sense of this term, but of real partnership.
