  • Alexey Moiseev, Deputy Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation
    «“RUSSIA CALLING!” is a unique platform. It is excellently organized, as always. It’s also very impressive that it’s attended by representatives of numerous media outlets. So even if you are not able to personally take part in the event you can watch a live broadcast of the Forum. Furthermore, the Forum is an excellent communications platform and provides unrivalled access to people who are interesting to talk to. From my point of view, everything went well. And what is more, I have heard in the so-called lobby that today Plenary Session was the best in all the history of “RUSSIA CALLING!” Forum. The topics are quite actual, everyone saw how the discussion was flaring – even when the sun sank over the horizon both the panel’s participants and audience had desire to continue the discussion on the announced topics»

    «It's been a pleasure to participate in the   VTB big event in Russia. It's first time I've been here and I am really enjoying it.  Of course the first day of this big event was very interesting to us because I got a good perspective on how the Russian Ministries and also of course your President Putin look at the development in Russia.  So it was very helpful for us as a Germany ECA to be able to better assess how the development is going»
