author: Elvira Latypova

The Euromoney Investment Forum is opened at the Ufa Congress Hall. It is organised by the Government of Bashkortostan together with Euromoney Company within the limits of the cooperation agreement signed this year.

The Deputy Prime-Minister of the Government RB Evgeniy Mavrin sees the global purpose of teamwork with Euromoney in working out of recommendations on steady social and economic development of the republic. Making a report at the forum opening, the Vice-Premier underlined its timeliness.

The Euromoney Forum takes place among other large international events — «Gas. Oil. Technologies-2013» exhibition and «The Big Chemistry» Forum. Thus, the European financial community will have an opportunity to meet with representatives of traditionally strongest branches of our republic.

Tristan Hillgarth, the Director of Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC marked preciseness of the development program of Bashkortostan. Thus he underlined that for successful realisation of any strategy and any intentions it was important «not to confuse plans with results of work», «to provide understanding and acceptance of strategy by people at all levels», and also «to estimate importance of human resources». Mr. Hillgart considers that there is an understanding of these factors in Bashkortostan.

Euromoney Investment Forum will be held in a format of panel discussions. A subject of the first one is «Bashkortostan in 2013 and in the long term: development and usage of key economic possibilities». The others have narrower specialisation. A round-table conference devoted to directions of republican economic growth will be held.

Within the limits of the Investment Forum signing of a cooperation agreement between the Government of Bashkortostan and the World Bank and an agreement between the Ministry of Economic Development RB and Ernst&Young Company is planned.
