On November 17, 2020, an online news conference of the head of the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo) Yevgeny Primakov took place at the Rossia Segodnya Press Center.
Due to the current epidemiological situation conference participants could not meet face-to-face, but it did not stop Yevgeny Primakov to have a frank conversation with representatives of Russian and foreign media in the online format.
First of all, the head of Rossotrudnichestvo, E.A. Primakov, thanked his predecessors for the work of the Agency and its successful projects, the implementation of which will be continued. At the same time, according to the new head of the Agency, the main work of Rossotrudnichestvo requires a modern approach and effective tools.
The press conference marked the end of the conceptual changes in the Head Office of Rossotrudnichestvo and launched the transformations in the activities of its representative offices abroad.
Today we have heard many ideas about the new format of the work of Rossotrudnichestvo, and in order to comprehend them, we suggest listening to the recording of the online news conference (https://newsfactory.ria.ru/static/SPlayer.html?id=33974403) and organize a discussion on the implementation of the announced initiatives in Malaysia.
