VTB Capital Investment Forum “RUSSIA CALLING!” 20-22 November 2019, Moscow

The 11th annual VTB Capital “RUSSIA CALLING!” Investment Forum will be held 20-22 November 2019 at the World Trade Center in Moscow.

VTB Capital’s RUSSIA CALLING! is a unique global event that brings together policy makers, investors and business figures to promote dialogue, and encourages strategic investment into Russia’s economy.

The high-level dialogue at RUSSIA CALLING! helps to create conditions that enable Russian companies to continue performing well in global markets, as well as laying the groundwork for multinational companies to invest in Russia.

The topics at the Forum are chosen each year to reflect the biggest trends in the global economy: Russia’s economic development; strategies to accelerate regional growth; trends in the debt and equity capital markets and a range of other business and investment issues.

The plenary session is attended by the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, who delivers the Investment Forum’s keynote speech. The agenda also includes a number of panel sessions with senior government officials, executives of major international and Russian corporations. Last year's Forum brought together more than 2,500 guests, including more than 500 foreign delegates from 63 countries, government officials and heads of major global corporations.

VTB Capital has worked actively in international markets, playing a significant role in stimulating foreign investment into the Russian economy. The RUSSIA CALLING! Investment Forums have taken place in Moscow, London and New York since 2009.

VTB Capital has been honoured with an award for its RUSSIA CALLING! Investment Forum in the Communicate Magazine Corporate & Financial Awards and the IPRA Golden World Awards. In addition, the Forum has been voted #1 Pan European Conference, according to Extel Survey.
