“Much of Russia’s success is linked to the fuel and energy industry and attention paid to problems and achievements in the industry. Energy makes the national and international news each day: new technologies are actively being introduced, new partnerships are emerging, and companies are entering new markets. We expect that the Russian Energy Week forum will enable international and Russian participants to see the whole range of opinions and create new joint initiatives”.
“I am certain that Russian Energy Week will quickly find a place in the calendar of international events based our country’s role in the global energy industry. Such a platform is necessary for the fuel and energy sector, our companies and experts. Even this year, Russian Energy Week will become an important and major event in Russia on the energy theme”.
“The world is rapidly changing under the influence of new technologies as well as growth in urbanization and industrialization, and energy is now at the forefront of these changes. I am confident that Russian Energy Week will be a key platform for discussing the objectives facing the industry and advanced technologies and coming up with solutions to develop energy, not only on a Russian scale, but also around the world. I am pleased to welcome the participants in Russian Energy Week on behalf of Schneider Electric, a partner in the Forum’s organization”!
“The Russian fuel and energy sector is the foundation of the national economy and a substantial part of the global energy industry. Representatives of the government, business, and the expert community must maintain a qualitative dialogue to effectively develop it. I am certain that Russian Energy Week will become an important industry platform for discussing current events and trends, working out new approaches to the development of the energy sector as well as establishing and developing business ties”.
“Energy is often a driver of the changes that take place in the economy. It consists of a whole range of problems, initiatives, and ideas that are not always possible to discuss on existing platforms. In this regard, holding a representative industry forum in Russia is a long overdue decision, which I am sure will generate interest among our Russian and foreign colleagues”.
“The ‘Russian Energy Week’ International Forum is an effective platform for a constructive dialogue between representatives of leading oil companies, industry experts, and various business communities. Meetings of this level are a good opportunity to learn about trends in the industry’s development and exchange advanced experience as well as scientific and technical achievements in the global oil industry”.
“Despite a difficult macroeconomic environment, Russia’s petrochemical industry has demonstrated steady growth by implementing major investment projects, improving production efficiency and expanding its product range. I am confident that the Russian Energy Week will help participants agree on further steps for realizing the potential for processing our nation’s hydrocarbon resources”.
“As Russia’s biggest company specializing in open-pit coal mining, Kuzbassrazrezugol is part of its fuel and energy complex and is thus interested in a constructive conversation about the outlook for the industry and the urgent issues facing coal miners in this difficult coal market environment. I am confident that the REW will become a launchpad for mutually beneficial cooperation between Russian and international companies.The issues of improving the coal mining industry’s efficiency and safety are the key premises for our corporate development strategy for the coming years”.
“It’s very important to make sure that the fuel and energy complex and thermal power generation in particular outpace the rest of the economy. The discussion of urgent industry issues that experts and participants in the Russian Energy Week will raise will help achieve just that”.
“We are very pleased to welcome such an important event as Russian Energy Week that will become another platform to develop international cooperation in the energy sector. Open dialogue is very important, especially nowadays.. We really hope that in the future this event will become a yearly tradition and will keep on bringing international and Russian power companies as well as regulatory authorities together to discuss main challenges that power sector is facing and finding best solutions”.
“A strong, efficient and competitive energy industry is essential for our nation’s stable development and economic security and for it to command respect. I believe an important objective of the Russian Energy Week is to emphasize the best practices and strengths of the national energy industry and to design strategies for improving and developing them further”.
“A systemic approach and regular “reality checks” are particularly important for the energy industry. The Russian Energy Week helps government agencies, companies and experts develop optimal long-term solutions for the industry.”
“I believe that the Russian Energy Week will become a leading modern expert platform for a constructive dialogue between major Russian and international energy companies. Even today, the Forum offers a unique potential for sharing opinions, improves the image of Russia’s fuel and energy complex and encourages new investment in the industry”.
“The Russian Energy Week International Forum is an important event for the fuel and energy complex. Its busy programme effectively spans the entire range of urgent matters facing the Russian and global oil industry and paves the way for offering comprehensive solutions through joint efforts. I wish all Forum participants and organizers effective work, a constructive dialogue and interesting meetings!”
