To the participants of the 66th FCEM World Congress
Dear participants of the 66th FCEM World Congress!
I welcome you in Russia, which for the first time is hosting such a highly representative forum of the greatest international organization of business women.
The role which women play in social and economic processes cannot be overstated. For our country, an active women involvement in business and in economic development is too, of high importance. They work in various spheres of activity. And handle effectively not only work issues but also they are always determined to attention and care of their personnel and their well-being. They are making major contributions to implementation of humanitarian and social projects.
Female entrepreneurship in our society is an example of responsible and professional attitude to the case, creative energies and wisdom, an example of knowing how to dialogue, reaching a compromise as well as operating productively, with full vigour. Achieving success in all spheres of life. Also in solving crucial challenges facing the world- preserving the family and supporting children.
Wealth of experience of women in business together with success stories of all participants of the forum, undoubtedly, will be very fruitful in discussing key topics of your agenda. And the forum itself and its recommendations will have significant impact on solving the numerous problems business women face in their activity. They will contribute to strengthening business and partnership ties, safeguarding the world and friendship on our planet.
I wish you fruitful work and the best of luck.
- President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin
To the organizers, participants and guests of the 66th International Congress of the World Association of Women-Entrepreneurs FCEM
Dear participants of the Congress!
I welcome you in the Russian capital at the 66th International Congress of the World Association of Women Entrepreneurs.
This is a major event in the public and business life of Moscow, which gives priority to creating favorable conditions for business.
The city has formed a system of financial, property, legal and other support for small and medium-sized businesses, which are actively demanded by women who want to open and promote their own business.
The development of women's entrepreneurship is one of the global trends and the driver of growth in the share of small and micro businesses in the total volume of goods and services produced. Moscow is no exception. Possessing high professionalism and managerial talent, Muscovites willingly manifest themselves in business, expand the horizons of the possible, develop new niches, aimed primarily at women and family audiences.
I am convinced that the Congress will be an excellent platform to share experiences, strengthen business ties, share success stories and plans for the development of women's business.
I wish you fruitful communication, new interesting projects and wonderful impressions from staying in hospitable Moscow.
- Mayor of Moscow, Sergey Sobyanin
