Forum participant’s opinion

«Such forums as the XI International Forum on Industrial Safety definitely help in improving the situation with industrial safety. Among participants there are representatives of international associations from different countries and continents, each with its own history and its geopolitical situation. Due to this fact, even a simple discussion of what is going on in each of the countries represented by the participants, both in regulatory activity and in work of supervisory bodies, later allows Forum participants to use this experience in their own countries. Contacts between representatives of different countries result in direct improvement of international relations and help in signing important contracts.»
