VTB RUSSIA CALLING! Investment Forum will be held in Moscow on December 7-8

The 14th VTB RUSSIA CALLING! Investment Forum will take place at the World Trade Center in Moscow on December 7-8. The main theme of the event is “Making Deglobalization: Uniting Sovereign Economies.”

The Forum’s guests and participants include representatives of governmental bodies, members of the Russia business community, and investors from China, India, Turkey, the Gulf countries, the Middle East, Africa, Central and Southeast Asia, and other countries with which Russia is building partnerships.

The changes in the political, financial and information landscape pose new challenges for the gradual development of national economies and international cooperation.

“Amid the changing economic paradigm, the consolidation of the most active part of our society – the entrepreneurs – is especially crucial. The economy is currently focused on introducing and implementing breakthrough technologies, executing infrastructure projects, and creating new financial instruments. Many of these goals can be reached only through cooperation. It is not only about globalization anymore, but about partnerships and mutual investments. At what stage of the process are we right now, what kind of risks and opportunities lie ahead of us, where do we find stimuli for transformation – we will try to find answers to these questions at the RUSSIA CALLING! Forum,” summed up the event’s agenda President and Chairman of VTB Bank Management Board Andrey Kostin.

On the first day of the Forum, government officials and representatives of the leading Russian and international companies will discuss the developmental trajectory of the Russian economy, as well as the most effective strategies for strengthening countries’ monetary sovereignty in the current environment.

For the first time in the history of the Forum, the second day will feature exclusive private meetings with the participation of retail investors. Attendees will be able to exchange their views on the prospects of financial markets and discuss the challenges the investment community is facing today.

The forum will be held in person. Everyone interested can join the broadcast of the first day’s sessions and listen to the speakers online from anywhere in the world. Please visit the Forum’s official website to learn more about the event at
