The conference SCO is the space of economic cooperation and counteraction to the global crisis organized by the Business Council and IBA within the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum contributed to the common approaches development.

The cooperation in the humanitarian sphere was effective. Thus, the ministers of culture adopted the Declaration of youths role in preserving and augmenting cultural traditions and heritage of the SCO nations. This important future-oriented document seems to become a foundation for practical actions.

I would like to express sincere gratitude for the positive assessment of my contribution as a Secretary-General and a contribution of Myrzakan Usurkanovich Subanov as a Director of the Executive Council of RATS. The team of diplomats and experts working within SCO consider it a high honor to be involved in the noble mission of rapprochement between our countries that have created a perfect model of cooperation.
