Greetings on the opening of the 5th Russian-Chinese Energy Business Forum

October 19, 2023

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to the participants, organisers and guests of the 5th Russian-Chinese Energy Business Forum.

The message reads, in part:

“Relations of comprehensive partnership and strategic cooperation between the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China have reached an unprecedented high level and continue to develop dynamically. One of the key components of these relations is energy cooperation, which is becoming increasingly active and multidimensional.

“Major bilateral projects in the oil and gas sector and in peaceful nuclear energy are being consistently implemented. The volume of Russian energy supplies to Chinese consumers is growing accordingly. We are jointly developing technological innovations aimed at improving the efficiency of raw materials production, processing and transportation, as well as at ensuring their environmental safety.

“The Russian-Chinese Energy Business Forum plays a significant role in promoting mutually beneficial cooperation, which provides a direct constructive dialogue between representatives of relevant government agencies, business and expert circles in the two countries. I am confident that during this forum you will thoroughly discuss the most pressing issues on the industry agenda and outline new, promising forms of co-operation.”
