Cooperation with overseas colleagues, financial associations and organizations is the most efficient way to exchange experience, study new management techniques and establish professional contacts. Formal communication and networking of professional from all over the world usually takes place within the framework of conferences and forums.
Russian professional community actively participates in this process and largely due to the intensive development of RCFD. Members of a professional association can easily get an access to a significant international event. A few years ago there was no such organization in Russia. Today, RCFD provides such an opportunity.
A Committee for International Cooperation was created in the structure of RCFD to organize permanent communication with overseas colleagues, to delegate Russian financial employees to foreign conferences and forums and to inform on the latest market events and trends in the financial sector. Its main goal is not only organization of participation in international events, but also establishment of steady contacts with foreign professional associations and their members and to build up the reputation of Russian financial experts.
