The message reads, in part:
“In recent years, your forum has gained popularity, enriching itself with interesting ideas, plans and initiatives, and has proven to be an effective and popular platform for business cooperation and friendly communication between young people from Eurasian states.
This year, the forum again has a full and busy agenda with issues related to promoting international humanitarian, cultural and educational ties as well as popularizing the Russian language and Russian culture.
And, of course, you will be able to see the landmarks and memorable places of Orenburg, located at the border between Europe and Asia, and feel the hospitality and warmth of local residents.
I am confident that the forum will be held at a high level, will give a boost to new joint and mutually beneficial projects, and will help the participants exchange experience and practical expertise.”
