During the discussion, Sergei Naryshkin stressed the importance of the government’s involvement in forming a future talent pool: "The specialists in state and public management are in high demand now, but they will be even more needed tomorrow and in the near future. In Russia, this sphere has not yet been sufficiently equipped with the qualified personnel and each economic sector requires professional resources. It is extremely important that reputed universities purposefully train such specialists."
In his turn, Vladimir Mau thanked the expert for his support to the students’ core education noting that undergoing an internship at a supreme federal authority expands opportunities for the future specialists to apply their competences and expertise.
As usual, the Summer Campus gathers students of the leading foreign universities as well. To this end, Sergei Naryshkin emphasized Russia’s significant interest in attracting foreign students to participation in such educational projects. "The world is getting global, therefore it is important that our young people communicate more actively with their colleagues from other countries."
In conclusion, the Summer Campus Academic Advisor emphasized that it is the younger generation that can become a creative force able to offer unexpected and effective solutions to the pressing social and economic challenges the country faces and wished good luck to the participants of the Summer Campus – 2013.
