Dear colleagues, Dear friends!
Happy New Year 2024 and Merry Christmas!
The past year has been difficult and full of challenges. Nevertheless, thanks to the joint efforts of government and business, the Russian economy has adequately coped with the challenges of the time. We were able not only to withstand sanctions restrictions, but also to use them to develop the domestic market. Today, despite the difficulties, domestic entrepreneurs are actively developing their businesses, creating jobs, occupying advantageous positions in the domestic market, and continue to look for sources for further growth.
This year, in the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the Russian Federation, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the creation of the first Bureau of Commodity Expertise in Russia, which marked the beginning of the formation of the expert system of chambers of commerce and industry, provided support to business in resolving various issues, continued to expand the membership base, and actively developed international economic communications, worked to improve the regulatory framework for doing business in the country.
I would like to thank all employees of the system of chambers of commerce and industry in the country, members and partners of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the Russian Federation for their joint work.
In the coming year, I want to wish you, your loved ones, friends and colleagues good health, happiness, kindness, financial stability and prosperity. May the New Year 2024 be a time of great opportunities, achievements and professional success for you.
Sergey Katyrin, President of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry
