2005 - Ninth Annual Russian Investment Symposium


Founded in 1997 at Harvard University, the U.S.-Russian Investment Symposium brings together Harvard professors, key members of the financial community, government officials and business leaders for a results-oriented Symposium designed to illuminate Russia’s investment climate. We are working closely with the U.S. Government, and with the Russian Government led by Minister German Gref to create an event that will serve your interests and contribute to strengthening business ties between our two countries. Highlights include a large delegation of Russian Telecom and IT company leaders, and Andrei Illarionov, Special Advisor to President Putin, will be a key speaker.

This year we are working closely with the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) as our event partner and the main symposium will be hosted at Fidelity Investments’ World Trade Center in Boston.

With our inclusive partner policy, we work with a broad range of academic institutions, NGOs, and business associations, among those are The Nixon Center, American-Russian Chamber of Commerce, Judge Institute of Management at the University of Cambridge, Mid-Atlantic – Russia Business Council, BISNIS, Coalition of Service Industries and Woodrow Wilson Center. As last year, we are featuring case studies with Harvard Business School Professors.

Along a new line of constructive engagement this year, we are focused on more practical elements than ever before. For the first time, on October 31st, we are also featuring an US-Ukrainian Investment Symposium.
