Dear colleagues! Dear friends!
I am glad to welcome you within the framework of Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum, which in 2017 brought together its participants in spring, at the end of April for the first time.
For the fourteenth time thousands of guests and partners, eminent experts, leading economists, businesspeople from different regions of Russia and foreign countries, heads of major companies, representatives of government and civil society meet in the capital of our region. Traditionally the most topical issues of economic development, which are of utmost importance for our region and the whole country, are discussed at the panels and meetings of the forum.
The Strategy of sustainable economic development of the Russian Federation in 2017-2025 became the key topic of Krasnoyarsk economic forum in 2017. The present year plays a crucial role for the formation of the country's social and economic agenda in the upcoming political cycle. And it is very important for us that the Krasnoyarsk region is an acknowledged participant of discussions with the federal agenda.
The issues of ecology, which were stated by the President of Russia among priorities of the state policy, are reflected in the business program of the forum. I am sure that Krasnoyarsk economic forum will provide immense opportunities for the discussion of questions of the ecological equilibrium in the domestic economy for the participants and will promote the birth of new legislative initiatives in this field.
I wish all the participants of the forum effective and productive work. I hope sincerely that the Siberian spring will fully allow our guests to estimate all the beauty of the capital of the Krasnoyarsk region.

Governor of Krasnoyarsk Krai

V. A. Tolokonsky
