Andrey Sharonov, Deputy Minister of Trade and Economic Development
Russian President Vladimir Putin called for the creation of a new world economic order that gives greater clout to fast growing emerging nations. Speaking at the forum on Sunday, Vladimir Putin criticised contemporary international institutions - like the G8 and the WTO - calling them "unefficient". Does that mean Russia will join the WTO only on it's own terms? Or does Moscow have alternatives to propose? To give us the answers, joining us from St. Petersburg is Deputy Minister of Trade and Economic Development, one of the key-speakers at the Forum - Mr. Andrey Sharonov.
