Holding the I SCO Member States’ Heads of Regions Forum is an important milestone for the Chelyabinsk Region
Holding the I SCO Member States’ Heads of Regions Forum is an important milestone for the Chelyabinsk Region. It is my deepest hope that it becomes a new spot to enhance the regional-level communication between the public and governmental bodies’ representatives, business and finance communities, research and nonprofit organizations.
The Forum provides business with the new modes of interaction, meant to help it in finding new partners, entering the markets of foreign countries, and benefiting from a wider scope of its activities and new opportunities. The Forum executive bodies in general, and its directorate in particular, shall facilitate this process by developing the ways to execute the decisions made by the delegates. The Forum’s integration objectives shall be implemented via new interaction modes, including the b2b contact exchange and the business forum featuring a presentation site, where the entrepreneurs shall be able to find each other, hold negotiations and later on let the agreements evolve into cooperation.
I firmly believe that it would not take the Forum a long time to become an efficient and a much needed spot to develop interregional cooperation, exchange experience, and provide support for SMEs, helping to extend the contact network and enhance the connections between the SCO member states’ business communities.
Dear participants and guests of the Forum, may your activities here be involving and fruitful, your meetings useful, and all the projects you have in mind be successfully implemented.
