Alexander Vysokinsky: GMIS 2019 Shapes Yekaterinburg’s Image

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, July 10, 2019. Mayor of Yekaterinburg Alexander Vysokinsky commented on the expected effect of the city hosting the second Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS), the town council’s Information Policy Department reports.

‘The Urals’ capital has gotten used to hosting such high-profile events as the Global Summit. Occasions like these naturally shape Yekaterinburg’s image and attract ever more people, resources, and investment here,’ Vysokinsky said at the summit’s opening.

Vysokinsky stressed that Yekaterinburg was one of Russia’s key industrial centers as well as the capital of a federal constituency and a home to offices and HQs of 400+ transnational companies.

‘This was all possible due to the trust we learned to develop when doing business with our foreign partners and due to the trust the country’s government had in the city. Yekaterinburg Council and the local residents all welcome GMIS 2019 participants to the Urals’ capital,’ Alexander Vysokinsky said.

The 2nd Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS) opened in Yekaterinburg this week. The event’s agenda covers some forty business meetings of varying formats, including panel sessions, interviews with opinion leaders, Q&A sessions, and business breakfasts.
