The message reads, in part:
“Bringing together representatives of the academic, expert and business communities in Moscow, this forum raises serious and exceptionally important topics that are of concern for all of humanity, without exaggeration. These issues include consequences of the pandemic that affect many countries and have changed the lifestyle we knew for years ahead, as well as military conflicts, economic sanctions, manufacturing that cause irreparable damage to the environment and have a disastrous impact on nature and life on Earth in general. These and other global challenges require coordinated, responsible and measured solutions that will help preserve our planet for future generations and make the world stable, safe and comfortable.
I am convinced that this forum will be an influential platform for discussing key issues of long-term and sustainable development of the world economy, harmonising and improving the finance agenda and developing new approaches to the main goals of the Paris Climate Accords.”
