Forum participant’s opinion

«I support the initiative of St.Petersburg science and business representatives to hold a world scale conference on the issues of industrial and environmental safety provision. Undoubtedly it is impossible to provide safety of a separate state without interaction with the world community. In the course of industrial progress environmental pollution, growth of threat for life and health of the planet population is inevitable, and it is only joint friendly actions that will be able to protect us and to preserve the world for future generations.»
