The message reads, in part:
“It is important that representatives of government agencies, major companies, and the business and expert communities from Russia and other countries meet again to discuss the main development trends of the global energy industry and shape the international energy agenda.
Our country is one of the leading energy powers, making a significant contribution to global energy security. The Russian fuel and energy sector is steadily increasing its potential, opening up new opportunities for large investments, widespread introduction of modern innovative technologies, and implementation of large-scale infrastructure projects, including those with international participation. Particular attention is paid to environmental issues and nature conservation.
I am confident that the forum participants will appreciate the achievements and prospects of the Russian fuel and energy industry and identify areas for further cooperation and mutually beneficial projects.”
