Welcome Letters

Maksim Sokolov, Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation

I would like to send my greetings to the guests of and participants in the 1520 Strategic Partnership International Railway Business Forum.

The annual meetings in Sochi have become a good tradition and produce an important economic impact. The documents and agreements signed here are often strategic in nature and do much to define the architecture of international relations in the railway transport industry for years ahead.

All of this makes the Forum the industry’s main business event, gathering the broadest attendance by government and business decision-makers in Sochi.

I am confident that the current meeting of our professional community will help place meaningful accents on further cooperative endeavours by railway companies, serve as a point of departure for new projects and help strengthen the competitive positions of the “1520 space” railway transport in the global economy.

I wish you successful and productive work and interesting and useful meetings.

Maxim Sokolov
Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation
