WEF to foster dialogue & cooperation at Russia CEO Roundtable

09
Jun '07
Over 150 international CEOs from the World Economic Forum member companies will convene in St Petersburg, Russia for an exclusive World Economic Forum Russia CEO Roundtable which aims to foster dialogue and cooperation between Western and Russian companies.

During the two-day meeting, held in partnership with the XIth St Petersburg International Economic Forum, the participants will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin and top Russian cabinet members including First Deputy Prime Ministers Dmitry Medvedev and Sergei Ivanov, Minister of Energy and Industry Victor Khristenko, Minister of Economic Development and Trade Herman Gref and Minister of Finance Aleksey Kudrin.

“This meeting comes at a crucial time as relations between Russia and its Western partners are extremely strained. The World Economic Forum acts as a neutral platform for dialogue and our meetings are a distinct opportunity to bring people together for the express purpose of improving understanding between Russia and its European partners."

"The world is rapidly changing and Russia, together with China, India and other emerging countries, has become a major power centre in a multipolar world. Our members, mainly coming from the European Union and the USA will have an opportunity to better understand the implications of the changing power equation. On the other hand, our members will certainly also express their concerns about the need to adhere to universal values, such as the rule oflaw and human rights."
