SIMFEROPOL, June 23. /TASS/. The third annual Crimean transport forum opens on Thursday in the Crimean city of Alushta.
According to the organizers, participants in the forum will include government officials, businessmen active in the sphere of transport and cargo owners from all around Russia.
"The annual Crimean transport forum is attended by more than 300 delegates from Russian and from foreign countries. Among this year’s participants are representatives from such companies as Bashneft, Transcontainer, Rosmorflot, FosAgro-Trans, Pulkovo Cargo Terminal, and others," the organizers said in a press release.
In his greeting message to the participants in the forum, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev noted the importance of realizing the forum’s initiatives in practice. "The first such forum was held in Crimea practically immediately after Crimea’s reunion with Russia as transport problems were among the most serious in the peninsula," Medvedev said in his message. "How to make Crimea’s transport infrastructure more modern and convenient for people - this and other professional issues will be on the agenda of the current forum."
"I hope the discussion will be constructive and useful and your initiatives will be used in practice," he noted.
Crimea’s head, Sergei Aksyonov, said he is sure the forum will help Crimea integrate into Russia’s transport system, improve its investment climate and encourage further development.
The forum is co-sponsored by the transport committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house and Crimea’s ministry of transport. TASS is among key information partners.
