Year by year, the understanding comes that without the media, without the agenda that should be created not only within the media, but also in business, in politics, it is impossible to promote large infrastructure projects, Alexander Lebedev b>. - But the main thing is not even in projects - the main thing is in understanding that it is necessary to move from wars to creation. It is necessary to build not just a single space - informational, political ... It is necessary to achieve new elements of trust. When businesses start holding media congresses, it means that something has changed in the world. The Eurasian Peoples' Assembly is becoming one of the key players in the humanitarian space of Eurasia."

At the end of the official events of the Eurasian Media Congress, the head of the EDB Andrey Yuryevich Belyaninov gave an exclusive interview to the TV channel "Big Asia".  ;

“What would I like from today's event? So that they learn more about us, so that we are in demand, so that we correspond to what has just been said to you. I'm sure we can do it. We would very much like our wishes to correspond to the regulatory framework that would be in the work of the Governments of the founding countries of our Bank. It seems to me that our Bank deserves more attention and greater participation in the integration processes of our countries. To do this, of course, we must be more active. I think we need to meet again in six months and see what's going on, - Aandrey Belyaninov suggested.
