The President said, in particular, in his message:
“Your forum is deservedly considered an important event in the life of Russia’s business community. Every year, it brings together members of the banking community, brokerage firms, Russian and international investment funds, heads of business organisations, state officials, and experts and analysts in the sector. This kind of direct and multifaceted dialogue is tremendously useful for working out solutions to current financial and economic problems, chief among which are developing the Russian securities market and its links with the global financial system, and developing a comfortable investment climate in our country.
Russia’s stock market has great growth potential. We have established the needed infrastructure and continue improving the legal base for raising capital through share and bond issues. It is important that we not rest on our laurels but continue to work on making our national financial market more competitive and attractive. Our financial market’s possibilities should measure up in full to business needs and our national development tasks.”
The eighth annual Moscow Exchange Forum is taking place on April 5–7 in Moscow.
