On September 7, 2012, APEC CEO Summit 2012, chaired by Andrey Kostin, VTB Bank President and Chairman of the Management Board, started in Russia’s Far East.
Over 750 CEOs will participate in the summit and discuss such important issues as globalization and economic integration, cooperation in the monetary and financial sector, transport infrastructure, energy, food and water resources, and development of new technologies.
«It is a great honor for me to open the APEC CEO Summit here on Russky Island, which for years was a closed territory, but now is Russia’s main gate to the Pacific Rim. We’ll have to work under a very hard schedule as those tremendous challenges we face today require non-trivial approaches and breakthrough decisions. I am sure that the CEO Summit participants will have an open and fruitful dialogue.»
