Greetings on the opening of the 4th Yalta International Economic Forum

The message reads, in part:

'Today, prominent politicians and representatives of business and expert communities and public organisations from many countries will meet in Yalta once again to discuss the comprehensive development of Crimea and other socioeconomic issues.

The busy agenda of the forum has been composed so as to provide more information to investors about the huge potential of southern Russia and favourable conditions for investing in its economy.

The forum participants will have an opportunity to launch direct dialogue with Russian businesses and the heads of federal, regional and local authorities, as well as to present practical proposals to improve the business climate and map out plans for strengthening cooperation.

I hope that this year the forum will again stir the interest of our foreign partners and lead to the launch of new projects in high-tech industries, culture, the environment, tourism and construction.'

The Yalta International Economic Forum is an annual international business event held in Crimea. This year the forum is being held from April 19 to 21 in Yalta.
