The Russian Investment Forum — is a traditional platform for presenting Russia’s investment and economic potential. The Forum is held with the participation of the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev. «This is a platform not only for discussing current issues in Russia’s socioeconomic development, but also for reaching important agreements and signing mutually beneficial contracts. State officials, the business community, and leading experts work together to seek solutions to the main problems that are facing Russia today. Anyone can share their views on the current situation, and offer their solutions and specific proposals.» — Dmitry Medvedev, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation

«The Russian Investment Forum is a key annual event for presenting investment opportunities in Russia’s regions and for substantive discussion of regional development issues. The Forum customarily attracts representatives from nearly all regions of the country as well as major Russian companies, thereby enabling direct dialogue between the business community and the authorities. The contemporary tourism infrastructure offered by the Olympic capital means that Forum participants enjoy the perfect environment in which to both do business and relax.» — Dmitry Kozak, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation (Chair of the Organizing Committee)

The most environmentally-friendly exposition at the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi 2017 was the exhibition stand of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia. The head of Rosprirodnadzor Artem Sidorov and the Governor of the Arkhangelsk region Igor Orlov saw and appreciated the exhibition stand. A. Sidorov said: “It is important that environmentally safe and energy-saving materials were used to create the exposition.” The constructions of the exhibition stand are made of wood waste, and all equipment works on energy-saving technologies. The design uses LED lamps, presentation products are displayed on screens with reduced power consumption. The stand consumes 40% less electricity than any other similar design. Special attention should be paid to the decoration: the walls of the exposition are decorated with live plants – ivy ivy and four kinds of Caucasian cheaders, which were collected in the Sochi arboretum as part of an environmental action to cleanse trees from satellite plants. Thus, in the architecture of the exhibition stand, the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia was able to fully comply with the main principle of the Year of Ecology – rational use of resources.
