Russia’s place in global economy will be the main item on the agenda of the Petersburg Economic Forum
Russia’s place in global economy, its competitive advantages, and its risky but attractive investments market will be the main item on the agenda of the Petersburg Economic Forum, which opens on Tuesday, Chairman of the Forum’s Governing Committee Alexander Braverman told the newspaper “Rossiiskaya Gazeta”, which published the text of the interview with him on Tuesday. Braverman said the first plenary meeting of the forum would be chaired by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and the key report would be delivered by First Vice-Premier Dmitry Medvedev, who will “analyse the Russian economy and forecast its role in conditions of globalisation”. Vice-Premier Alexander Zhukov will preside over the roundtable, taking part in which will be the economy ministers of the BRC group of countries (Brazil, Russia, India, and China). “Several economists regard those four nations as the locomotive of the new economy,” Braverman noted. President of the Russian Railways Company Vladimir Yakunin will deliver one of the key reports. Minister of Industry and Energy Viktor Khristenko and Minister of Natural Resources Yuri Trutnev will conduct the deliberations among the leaders of the major world raw materials companies. “Besides the speech by Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee Alexei Miller, much attention will surely be riveted to the report by Rosneft Head Sergei Bogdanchikov, which will be delivered on the eve of awaited this company’s IPO,” Braverman believes. “Head of the Unified Energy Systems of Russia Company Anatoly Chubais will inform the forum on the investment capabilities of the Russian Energy System, which is a far from easy, but attractive sphere for investors,” he added. The roundtable, devoted to innovation economy, which Russian Minister for Education and Science Andrei Fursenko will chair, is bound to evoke the interest of forum participants due to the speeches by Alexander Goncharuk, president of the AFK Sistema, who is renown for his managerial successes in high-tech electronics, and by Academician Konstantin Skryabin, a universally recognised specialist in bioengineering. The second day of the forum, Braverman said, will be devoted to such an important problem as the strong and weak aspects of Russian economy. Vice-Premier Sergei Ivanov, Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin, top managers of the World Bank, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, and Rector of the Academy of National Economy Vladimir Mao will state their views on this problem. The roundtables will touch on the interrelationships of the state and the business quarters, on the effectiveness of the state, on the fight against corruption, and on the problem of personnel training.
