The president of Syria Bashar al-Assad will arrive in Crimea for the Yalta International Economic Forum (YIEF), said the co-chairman of “Delovoy Rossii” and co-chairman of the organising committee of YIEF Andrey Nazarov on Thursday to journalists on the sidelines of the Russian investment forum in Sochi.

“The French delegation, which will be headed by Marine Le Pen (party leader of Rassemblement National), and the Syrian Arab Republic, which will be presented by Bashar al-Assad, became the honourable delegations of the fifth forum (he will head the delegation). Sergey Aksenov (the head of Crimea) gave him an invitation when we were there, and we received confirmation of his visit,” said Nazarov.

The fifth annual Yalta International Economic Forum will take place on April 17th-20th 2019. It is expected that about 3,000 participants from more than 100 countries of the world will take part in it.

The Russian investment forum takes place in Sochi on February 14th-15th. The main subject of the forum this year is the implementation of national projects. The organiser is the “Roskongress” fund. TASS is the general information partner and photohost agency of the forum.
