Dear participants of the 10th Moscow International Energy Forum “Russian Fuel and Energy Complex in the XXI Century”,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to welcome participants and guests of the 10th Moscow International Energy Forum “Russian Fuel and Energy Complex in the XXI Century”, as well as to congratulate colleagues in the Forum Organizing Committee, Program Committee and Directorate with the 10th anniversary of the Forum!
Today, the fuel and energy industry is still a key segment of our economy. Its sustainable operation is a sound foundation for innovative development of our nation.
At the same time, Russia cannot be outside the global economic processes, international integration and globalization of socioeconomic relations.
Thus, the role of the Forum “Russian Fuel and Energy Complex in the XXI Century” can be hardly overestimated. Every year, its platform is used by the participants of energy dialog from different countries to not only exchange energy development ideas but also broadly determine ways of sustainable international development.
For the decade, the Forum has certainly proved its consistence, and in many ways it has facilitated strengthening of international contacts with Russia in the area of energy.
I wish the Forum participants further successful and fruitful work!
Co-Chairman of the MIEF-2012 Organizing Committee,
Honorary President of the Forum,
Member of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation
