Welcome Letters

Dmitry Medvedev, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation

Dear friends,
I would like to welcome you to Sochi.

Over the past nine years, the International Rail Business Forum has acquired well-deserved recognition from specialists. It has become a distinguished platform for discussing pertinent problems and perspectives of the most important industry for our country. Here, new business contacts are made and agreements are attained.

At the center of your attention this year is the development of international transportation corridors and high-speed transport, creating major multimodal hubs and logistical centers, and of course, ensuring transportation safety of passengers and freight. A joint solution to these issues will contribute to improving railroad infrastructure, a unified common “broad gauge” standard, and serve as an impetus for investment activity in the Eurasian area.

I am certain that our international partners will pay tribute to the modern and comfortable transportation created for the Sochi Olympic Games and will appreciate what has already been done. And of course, they will experience the hospitality of the residents of the Kuban Region.

I would like to wish everyone constructive discussions, fruitful negotiations and the realization of promising projects.

Dmitry Medvedev
Prime Minister of the Russian Federation
