Davos forum to see number of events dedicated to Russia
A number of events focusing on Russia will be held at the annual world economic forum in Davos, Switzerland. One of them is a discussion on the tendencies of Russia’s development, titled Russia: What Is Next. The list of its participants features government officials, politicians, and businessmen from Russia and other countries. Sources told Itar-Tass Russian Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin, presidential advisor on economics Andrei Illarionov, telecommunications and information technologies minister Leonid Reiman, and a group of Russian MPs and business executives are expected to come here Tuesday. Russia will also be one of the central issues at a plenary session of the forum devoted to forecasts for the future in a situation where the fast growing markets retain their outstripping growth rates. Organizers of the discussion say in an annotation to its program that Brazil, China, India, and Russia have a good potential for becoming the world’s major forces in the next twenty or so years. Kudrin is expected to take part in an annual roundtable conference together with Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister Lydia Shuleva, Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Donald Evans, and Swiss finance minister Hans-Rudolf Merz. Also, he is due to meet with Jean Lemierre, president of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and executives of a number of large corporations.
