The message reads, in part:
“I sincerely welcome the fact that your forum carries on the tradition of bringing together in Moscow people of different ages, professions and interests to offer them an exciting, substantive programme. The Arctic Days have always presented a kaleidoscope of engaging events, academic discussions, business and creative meetings. However, most importantly, this is a continuation of the serious professional conversation between Russian and foreign participants about the development of the Arctic and our shared responsibility for the preservation of its rich natural, historical, ethnographic and cultural heritage.
I am certain that the forum will be constructive and will help launch new promising projects and initiatives.”
The Arctic Days in Moscow Forum has been held since 2010. This year it is taking place on November 19–21 and features the following events: a discussion on the Business Climate in the Arctic, the 2nd Open Arctic International Scientific Conference and a multimedia exhibition The Arctic.
