The Russian economic forum, that will be held in London on April 2 to 4, 2003, is bound to be successful due to the participation of Russian top officials in this event along with prominent Russian businessmen. This is the opinion of Stanislav Voskresensky, deputy head of the budget and tax policy committee of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, who spoke to an RBC correspondent. He noted that a forum of this gauge would allow the voicing of the positions of state authorities and businessmen, the discussing of acute issues and understanding changes in the Russian economy. In addition, officials and entrepreneurs will have a chance to discuss the real effect of reforms in Russia. Comprehension of the situation in Russia will allow for more active investments by foreign partners and the establishment of new business ties.
