MOSCOW, April 25 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has expressed the hope that a summit of the G8 group of leading economies in 2014 in Skolkovo hi-tech hub near Moscow will help to boost this project.
“We have a decision – to hold one of the significant events that Russia will host, i.e. the G8 summit in 2014, there (in Skolkovo),” he told a meeting of Skolkovo’s board of trustees on Wednesday.
