The first day of the XI Eurasian Economic Forum has come to a close in the Italian city of Verona. About 1,300 delegates from over 50 countries attended.

The Chief Executive Officer of Rosneft Igor Sechin read the welcome address from President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin to participants and guests at the Forum.

«The Forum has earned its authoritative position in international political, expert, and business circles. The diversity of its participants makes it possible to hold grounded discussions of a wide range of often very complex issues on the Eurasian agenda,» the address reads. «The theme of this meeting ’Economics of trust and business diplomacy from the Atlantic to the Pacific’ is highly relevant. It reflects the growing need for broad international cooperation in trade and economic relations, in the financial sector, the energy sector, in technology and other areas, which should be free from artificial barriers and obstacles such as sanctions and unfair competition. I would like to confirm that Russia is open to constructive cooperation with all partners on the Eurasian continent.»

«Italy plays a very important role in the Russian economy, and Verona is ranked third among exporters. Verona is, and sees itself as window for the development of business between Russia and Italy, and we would like to see the Russian business community should feel at home in our city. Verona’s entrepreneurs and their colleagues across Italy are ready and willing to expand relations with their Russian counterparts, including with government structures,» said Federico Sboarina.

Matteo Salvini explained that he believes Italy could become a ’bridge’ in relations between the United States and Russia, and that all disagreements should be resolved calmly at the negotiating table.

«I hope that Eurasian Economic Forum in Verona will gain pivotal role in further positive development of relationships between Europe and Asia,» emphasized Antonio Fallico.

On the first day of the forum, participants focused on issues relating to building an economy of trust, and energy security in greater Eurasia.
