WELCOME ADDRESS BY V.V. LUKYANENKO, DEPUTY PRESIDENT AND CHAIRMAN OF VTB BANK (PJSC) MANAGEMENT BOARD, TO THE PARTICIPANTS OF THE 9TH INTERNATIONAL FORUM ATOMEXPO 2017
Dear participants and guests,
VTB Bank welcomes you to the 9th International Forum ATOMEXPO 2017. The forum is a great platform for establishing business contacts, finding new points for growth and exchange of advanced business ideas. ATOMEXPO is especially important, since the nuclear industry is a concentration of the leading technology and innovative potential for transformation of the energy sector to meet public needs. VTB Bank has been actively working with the nuclear industry enterprises and has been a general sponsor of the event for several years; starting this year, we are a Platinum Sponsor of the Forum.
We are a reliable and established partner to the companies in the nuclear energy industry. Industry-specific competencies accumulated enable VTB to offer its clients the complete range of financial products and services that consider the specifics of business operations in the nuclear technology segment. Modern and convenient banking products are a must-have element in the implementation of business projects of any size; VTB Group has been providing the much-needed access to financial technologies.
VTB Group has been historically supporting projects implemented in Russia and abroad by nuclear industry enterprises. Especially noteworthy ones are credit and documentary support of the construction of Generation Units 3 and 4 at Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant in India, financing Federal State Unitary Enterprise Atomflot with the aim of building a fleet of nuclear ice-breaking vessels as part of Portoflot project and warranty support to more than 50 enterprises in the industry.
Obviously, successful development of the industry is the key to sustainability of the modern economy. ATOMEXPO 2017 helps promote business interests of various companies in the nuclear energy market by gathering industry professionals, presenting the latest developments of the nuclear industry and international-level financial instruments. I am confident participants and guests of the 9th International Forum will find new business ideas and resources for their implementation.
Wishing you a successful experience!
V.V. Lukyanenko, Deputy President and Chairman of VTB Bank (PJSC) Management Board
