The message reads, in part:
“It is symbolic that your meeting today is taking place at the venue of one of Russia’s newest and most modern resorts and centres of sports and outdoor activities – the Rosa Khutor mountain cluster – and brings together people who are gifted, enterprising and prodigal of ideas, including industry experts, specialists from leading industrial plants, university students, school children and young enthusiasts. This unique format has great practical importance and expands the festival’s potential. It promotes engaging and fruitful contacts, helps beginner inventors to realise their talents, and, of course, makes it possible to find new friends and like-minded people eager to join the work on brilliant and ambitious projects.
I am confident that the Ot Vinta festival will continue to assist in involving young people in the orbit of scientific and technical creativity and in training personnel for our high-technology industries.”
