To the participants, organizers and guests of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2019
I extend warm greetings to all the Forum participants and guests.
For more than two decades now, the Forum has been contributing in significant ways to finding answers to the key questions the world is facing today, and shaping a meaningful and constructive agenda for far-reaching international cooperation in the interests of sustainable and balanced development. This year government officials, prominent politicians and experts, as well as business leaders and researchers, will come together to discuss the future of the Russian and global economy and exchange views on various matters related to digitalisation and the technological challenges, as well as such urgent problems as climate change and growing social inequality.
We are all, undoubtedly, committed to promoting peace and security in the world, preserving and multiplying the cultural heritage of humankind so that people from across the world can fulfil their potential, get an education and work in dignity, confident in the future of their children. In order to deliver on these objectives, we need an economy that is strong and effective, honest and transparent global trade rules, free exchange in investment and technologies, and competition that is healthy and fair. Russia is open to proactive and equitable cooperation with all countries, regional and international organisations for achieving overall economic growth, developing transport, energy and telecommunications infrastructures, and promoting integration processes, including in Eurasia and the Asia-Pacific Region.
I strongly believe that the recommendations developed at the Forum and the agreements signed on its sidelines will serve the cause of enhancing international partnerships and building a prosperous future for our countries and peoples.
I hope you enjoy fruitful communication and wish you all the best.
