On the 3rd of December, a solemn annual meeting of the Free Economic Society of Russia and the Russian Imperial House was held in Moscow.
The history of the Free Economic Society of Russia is inextricably linked with the Russian Imperial House. The reception was organized in continuation of the historical traditions of interaction between the Imperial Free Economic Society and the Russian Imperial House according to the Protocol of receptions with the participation of the head of the Russian Imperial House of Maria Vladimirovna.
The first 150 years since the founding of the Society, meetings with the Imperial House were very frequent. In 2015, the year of the 250th anniversary of FES of Russia, the best traditions laid down by Catherine the Great were renewed: the country's first civil society institution, FES of Russia and the Imperial House, consolidated their efforts in serving the country. President of the Free Economic Society of Russia Sergey Bodrunov noted that the interaction of FES of Russia and the Imperial House has already contributed to the successful development of many initiatives.
“We intend to go one step ahead in the future, respond promptly to the most pressing issues of socio-economic development, meet the high level set by the leaders of the Imperial Free Economic Society, who stood at the origins of the reforms and transformations crucial for the country,” added Sergey Bodrunov.
