Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Anton Kobyakov held a meeting in Moscow with a delegation from the World Economic Forum, during which the sides discussed cooperation as part of the Russia House project in Davos.
The project serves as a platform to promote Russian initiatives among representatives of international business and official circles who get together in Davos, Switzerland, during the World Economic Forum (22–26 January 2018).
Following the signing at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2017 of a memorandum of cooperation between the Roscongress Foundation and the World Economic Forum International Organization for Public–Private Cooperation, Russia House was granted the status of the official Russian residence.
“Our objective is to draw attention to Russia as a country in which investors can realize their most ambitious projects. Russia House was conceived as a platform to stimulate dialogue among business circles, demonstrate Russia’s openness to joint working, and promote Russian culture and traditions on the international stage”, said Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Anton Kobyakov.
“The Russia House project is a multi-format space whose status and technical capabilities will enable project partners to hold open and private business events of all types, including panel sessions, business breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, meetings, and presentations, and to take part in a cultural and sports programme. In addition, Russia House will include a comfortable meeting facility for business meetings”, highlighted Roscongress Foundation CEO Alexander Stuglev.
