Moscow Government delegation to take part in Russia House in Davos

A delegation of the Moscow Government, led by Moscow City Department for Foreign Economic Activity and International Relations Head Sergei Cheryomin, will take part in the business programme of the Russia House in Davos. The official Russian residence is slated to open its doors from 21 to 25 January 2019 in Davos, Switzerland.

Cheryomin will be speaking at the ‘Digital Transformation of Cities’ session, where Moscow’s unique experience of introducing information technologies to all areas of urban management will be on display. As one of the world’s major urban centres, Moscow is a prime example of the use of modern computer innovations in the development of infrastructure and amenities for city residents.

A special Moscow Government Award for International Co-operation and Development of Foreign Economic Activity established by the Moscow Centre for International Cooperation, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, and the Kommersant Publishing House will occupy a place of honour in the cultural programme of the Russia House in Davos. The award is being handed out for the second time. The first ceremony took place during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on 23 May 2018.

The award is being presented to representatives of Russian and foreign business circles that play an active role in recent work aimed at achieving shared business goals and stimulating and supporting sustainable foreign economic relations with the Russian Federation. A jazz concert headed by Vadim Eilenkrig is planned for Russia House guests following the awards ceremony.

The Russia House project is a platform for promoting Russian initiatives among representatives of international business and official circles who gather in Davos, Switzerland, during the World Economic Forum. After the signing of a memorandum of cooperation between the Roscongress Foundation and the World Economic Forum at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2017, the Russia House became the official Russian residence there.
