Welcome words of Acting Governor of Krasnoyarsk Krai Mr. A.V.Uss:

“Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum has always been a place for substantive, in-depth discussions on Russia’s economic development strategies. The Forum has been successfully introducing new ideas on how to boost electric power industry, metallurgical industry, oil production and wood processing along with space industry, scientific research and technology. The Forum has made a valuable contribution to creating and maintaining public private partnership, discussing the region’s development trends and moving forward new concepts of Russia’s economy growth.

A number of landmark decisions on launching large scale investment projects have been made at the venues of the Forum. Now we are witnessing the results such as Lower Angara project execution, oil and gas fields development in the northern territories, renovation of city infrastructure in the capital of Winter Universiade-2019 and construction of the largest Siberian airport.

The 15th Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum “Russia 2018-2024: Implementing the Potential” will again address federal agenda issues. The 2018 is the year of upcoming presidential election, the year when the country’s development priorities must be defined. National prosperity can only be reached by boosting investment projects as well as making efficient use of human, scientific and economic resources of Russia. Thus, we can shape a future worth living for us and our descendants.

Siberia and Krasnoyarsk Krai in particular are notable for their unique competitive strengths that have already helped to put into practice lots of strategically significant concepts of the country’s development framework. Today, Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum is expected to come up with new breakthrough initiatives that will determine future development of the region on the federal scale. Being a moving force of the Yenisei Economic Zone it is able to become the core of the Eastern vector of Russia.

Economic issues relevant to Siberian macroregion are surely considered to be the matters of particular importance for the whole country. Leading experts, businessmen and government officials will gather to exchange views on such significant projects as the regional scientific and technological roadmap, formation of new economic growth areas in Siberia and sustainable transport systems of the future.

The attendees will also discuss how the government can support business community, how to introduce advanced technologies into metropolitan areas and use the experience of leading manufacturing enterprises in protecting environment.

Great attention is to be focused on economic cooperation with Southeast Asia and Euro-Asian Partnership members.

I wish all the participants and guests of the Forum to obtain great results at the discussion venues. I hope the decisions taken during the talks will pave the way for a breakthrough in the economy of Siberia and the entire country.”

An important YIEF focus is the search for ground-breaking approaches and instruments to solve the tasks of social and economic development and discussion of the best world business practices.
