Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev attends Gaidar Forum-2013 - International Conference "Russia and the World: Challenges of Integration".
Speaking at the forum, Mr. Medvedev said, in part:
"Russia presides over the G20 this year. We see our role in offering a policy to consolidate economic growth to our partners. Most importantly, we must restore confidence on global markets and develop new international financial centers. We must eliminate barriers hampering direct investment and global value-creation chains. We must ensure more transparent and more effective financial regulation, as well as that in other spheres, including energy, which is important for Russia. I am confident that we will be able to turn to normal sustained development in this manner, that is, by removing barriers and by strengthening international coordination".
