WELCOME SPEECH OF GOVERNOR OF KURSK REGION ALEXANDER MIKHAILOV TO THE GUESTS AND PARTICIPANTS OF THE 17TH INTERREGIONAL UNIVERSAL WHOLESALE AND RETAIL TRADE FAIR "KURSK KORENSKAYA FAIR 2017"
Dear guests and participants of the fair,
Let me wish you a warm welcome to the Kursk Korenskaya Fair, which once has glorified the ancient Kursk as "The Southern Trading Gateway to Russia", and revived at the turn of the 20th-21st centuries! In the ancient Russia, fairs have always been not only trading places, but also centers of economic ties between different territories, and at the same time a vivid and distinctive cultural phenomenon. The rich traditions of the Russian merchants, the famous spirit of entrepreneurship and the worldwide recognition of craftsmen, originated here. Taking into account the favorable geographical location, significant production, labor and scientific potential, rich resource base and appropriate infrastructure of our region, the fair is rightfully considered an event that promotes development of trade and economic relations between the regions of Russia and other countries. Nowadays, the fair is a promising venue for holding business negotiations, presentations, signing agreements on cooperation and business contracts in various sectors of the economy. Delegations from countries of near and far abroad, the regions of Russia, the State Duma and the Council of the Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Federal Ministries and Departments, the Office of the Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Central Federal District take part in the fair annually. Enterprises and organizations of different sectors of the economy present their expositions and products in pavilions, outdoor exhibition and retail areas. Every year, the Kursk Korenskaya Fair becomes a place where significant investment agreements, protocols on promotion of cultural and commerce ties between cities, contracts on cooperation are signed. The events of the fair are always multiple and diverse. I am confident that the fair will give the residents and guests of Kursk region an interesting and valuable communication, will provide an opportunity to find new business partners and establish a constructive dialogue. In addition to its historical and economic importance, the fair is a deeply international phenomenon. It fosters understanding between nations, promotes development of cultural exchange, education and enlightenment of youth in the spirit of humanism and morality of our society.
I wish all the guests and participants of the fair a constructive work, bright impressions, effective business communication and, of course, unforgettable holiday!
We are always open for cooperation and glad to see you at the 17th Interregional Universal Wholesale and Retail Trade Fair "Kursk Korenskaya Fair 2017".
