To the Participants of the Moscow International Energy Forum
«Russian Fuel and Energy Complex in the XXI century»
I am glad to welcome the participants and guests of the Forum.
Your meetings have proved to be an authoritative discussion site where the topical issues of domestic fuel and energy complex development are being discussed and effective measures to improve the investment attractiveness of fuel and energy complex are being suggested.
This year the Forum has reached a new international level and significantly increased the number of its
participants. The heads of the world's leading energy companies, representatives of government authorities, the diplomatic corps, prominent scientists and experts have met in Moscow.
I believe that today's event should make a significant contribution to the elaboration of proposals for the effective modernization of the national fuel and energy complex. I am referring to those key areas that will make Russian economy more strong and stable – the introduction of energysaving technologies, implementing energy efficiency programs. And of course, your work is intended to form a new legal and institutional system of the global energy security.
I wish you success in achieving your aims.
