The 17th European Banking Financial Forum dedicated to finding solutions to the ongoing financial crisis took place in Prague, the Czech Republic, on March 24-26, 2009. The Forum comprised the traditional ‘Russian sessions’ devoted to West-East and East-West investments.

The Forum was also attended by the President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, France’s Finance Minister Christine Lagarde, Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko, and Europe’s central banks’ top executives. As for the Russian participants, Gazprom’s Deputy Chairman Alexander Medvedev, State Duma Deputy Anatoly Aksakov, and heads of major businesses and financial institutions came to take part in the event.
