Russia is one of the leading players on the global energy market. So I am
certain that next year we will see a high level of interest in the Forum from
key players in the industry. In this regard, it is crucial to ensure that the
event is held at the highest level,” Novak said.
Organizing Committee members paid special attention to the results of the 5th

Committee Anton Kobyakov said that the Forum’s agenda has expanded this year
despite the difficult situation around the world, and the business programme
has been supplemented with new industry sessions. “Today, Russia is the centre
of growth for the new global energy industry. Our country has unique
technological capabilities in the commodity sector. The key role of Russian
companies on the global energy market should also be noted: the example of
international cooperation in the Arctic zone proves that our foreign partners
are interested in developing joint projects. I am certain that REW 2023 will
once again bring together representatives of dozens of foreign countries at a
single platform, and the discussions held during the Forum will once again
outline the trends in the industry’s development in the near future,” Kobyakov
