Commenting on results of the SPIEF-2015 Ivan Savvidi said:

“Reports made on the Forum confirmed the fact that world economy now is on the lookout for new paradigm of development. And force which will determine global world order in 21st century depends not only on resources of local economic, but on strategic cooperation between countries. Greece was announced as Russia’s official partner. I strongly believe that common mentality, history and age-old ties between nations should lie at the heart of strategic alliance.
