The message reads, in part:
“I greet you in Sochi at the traditional International Railway Business Forum.
Your forum deservedly has the status of one of the key events in the business year and always attracts the biggest railway, industrial and construction companies, as well as strategic investors from Russia and around the world.
Your agenda focuses on vital current issues related to the development of transport infrastructure united by common rail standards and turning the 1520 space into a key part of the Eurasian transport system. A diverse and efficient railway network means a high level of passenger and freight traffic, and ample opportunities for advanced integration projects that foster inter-regional and international relations, and thus for the dynamic development of national economies. The emphasis should be made on the introduction of modern logistics and management systems, large-scale use of advanced technologies, strengthening public-private partnerships and investment in long-term programmes.
I wish you fruitful work, success and all the best.”
