Vladimir Putin congratulates Roscongress Foundation team on tenth anniversary
President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin congratulated the management and staff of the Roscongress Foundation in an address to mark the organization’s tenth anniversary.
“In recent years, the Foundation has grown into a major, high-profile organization, gaining recognition as an effective organizer of some of the most important conventions and exhibitions, both in Russia and beyond. Some of the leading business events taking place under the auspices of the Foundation today include the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, the Eastern Economic Forum, the International Financial Congress, the Russian Investment Forum, the International Arctic Forum, and Russian Energy Week. They all aim to help realize the economic potential of Russia and its regions, to attract investment and technology, to develop multilateral cooperative ties with foreign partners, and to create a dialogue about a range of issues on the global agenda.
Roscongress Foundation events invariably meet the highest standards with respect to organization and content, which is clearly attested by the increasing numbers of heads of state and government who attend them each year, together with directors from globally renowned companies and prominent representatives from the scientific and expert communities. I would like to note that this level of success on the part of the Foundation is largely thanks to the team behind it, a group of true professionals who know their stuff and love their work. It is a reflection of their collaborative approach to solving the challenges they face.
I wish the Foundation continued success in developing and implementing new and promising projects in the future”, the Russian President said in his address.
