I hope that this forum will give a start to the emergence of interesting ideas and promising cooperation."

"This is a truly historic event for us, since we have not visited your wonderful country before," the head of state addressed the Filipino guests Minister of the Government of Moscow, Head of the Department of Foreign Economic and International Relations (DVMS) of the City of Moscow Sergey Cheremin. — Our city is currently one of the most active players in the international arena. And we strive to share our experience on the issue of ensuring the functioning of a large metropolis."

As the president of the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MTPP) stated in a conversation with the correspondent of TASS Vladimir Platonov, who moderated the forum, the Russian capital has great potential for cooperation. "Moscow is unique. Due to the fact that this is the largest metropolis with centuries—old traditions, we are developing all sectors of the economy — from packaging and selling food to high-tech industries and the most powerful digital programs," Platonov stressed. "The Philippine authorities are also showing interest, we see how the Moscow delegation is being received here at the highest level."

"The forum has become a very good opportunity for the Philippines. We can cooperate on a number of issues, and our authorities are able to learn a lot from the Moscow government in various areas, including transport and healthcare," Santos said.
