Alexander Shokhin, Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs
On behalf of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, I cordially welcome the participants, organisers and guests of the Tenth International Rail Business Forum 1520 Strategic Partnership.
Your Forum has become a unique platform to discuss the main trends on the transportation services market in the 1520 space.
The anniversary celebration of the Forum is a good occasion to summarise the results of ten years joint work and outline a strategy for the long term: developing transport corridors, harmonising legislation in matters of tariff and technical regulation, the strategic and socioeconomic parametres of major infrastructure projects, ensuring a balance between public and private investments and many other crucial issues for the transportation sector.
I wish all the participants, organisers and guests of the Tenth International Rail Business Forum 1520 Strategic Partnership fruitful work, useful business contacts and new successes and achievements.
President Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs
