As Mayor and on behalf of the City of Chicago, I welcome you to the Russian National Exhibition organized by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, with the support of World Business Chicago and the Chicagoland Chamber of Chicago. The City of Chicago is proud to help host this important event.

Trough this event, we can continue to strengthen the relationship between our nations.

Chicago continues to develop strong ties with Russian Federation and I value the many links that join our citizens together. These bonds are highlighted by the Sister City relationship we have enjoyed with Moscow since 1997.

Greetings to the organizers, delegates and guests of Russian National Exhibition in Chicago

Dear colleagues!
On behalf of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russian Federation Id like to greet the delegates and guests of Russian National Exhibition.

The slogan of the Exhibition is Reset of Russia-US relationships: lets change the world by changing ourselves. It reflects the superior task where Russian National Exhibition in Chicago by our believe is called to be an organic part of its solution.

History of diplomatic relations between Russia and US numbers two hundred years. It contains joint achievements, problems and even serious discrepancies. But in our opinion real partner relations are particularly distinguished for the parties are always ready and able to keep dialog and to find mutually benefit solutions for the most sensitive points.

Recently our presidents have given new impulse for bilateral interaction, approximation of positions for different points. Undoubtedly, this process cannot close up in frames of diplomacy only, it should embrace economical cooperation, business contacts, culture exchange and many other spheres. Only such approach could become the basis of long term cooperation. That is why we consider Russian National Exhibition as very timely step in the direction of intensifying bilateral connections for rather wide range of aspects.

Along with this both Russia and US today solve the problem of support stable development of national economies. Here in the head stands an achievement of postcrisis trace directly connected with modernization and active application of innovations. In this sense the Exhibition is called to assist development of fair interaction of the two countries in the field of innovative development.

I wish all participants of the Exhibition a fruitful work and success!

Minister of Industry and Trade of Russian Federation
Victor Khristenko
