Alpari recently took part in an economic forum in New York to discuss the future of Russian-American business relations. More than 350 representatives were on hand, including key figures from government agencies, multinational corporations, venture capital funds, banks, brokerage houses, insurance providers, consultancies and law firms.
The forum featured a number of panels, where such topics were discussed as the modernization of the Russian economy, Russia’s potential inclusion into international economic organizations and finding innovative solutions to the economic problems of today. Alpari’s Director of Public Relations, Dmitriy Tarasov, was there to take part in a “Banking and Finance” panel. Among the topics discussed was how to incorporate government regulation into different segments of the financial markets, including Forex.
“Today, Alpari is one of the leading brand names in Russian online trading. Its sterling reputation, its focus on clients and its innovative approach to business development have helped Alpari dominate the Russian market and play in integral role in the global retail Forex market,” Tarasov commented. “We try to use our experience gained from working in countries with tighter financial regulation to develop better cooperation between business and financial regulators in Russia, taking regional, cultural and legal differences into account.”
Influential financial experts spoke out about the current financial climate in Russia and shared their plans for future development through 2020. At the “Banking and Finance” roundtable, the global nature of financial markets and the need to integrate Russia into the global economy was one of the main issues discussed, especially given Russia’s intention to turn Moscow into one of the world’s financial hubs. According to Tarasov, the fact that Russia has not yet developed a clear framework for developing its financial infrastructure puts some of the country’s fastest-growing sectors at risk.
