The Year 2009: a Time of Challenges and Opportunities
Keynote statement by Alexey Miller

“Last year set before us the tasks of finding immediate responses to a whole range of challenges. Gazprom had to act taking into account the rapidly changing situation amid the global financial and economic crisis that peaked in the first half of last year. For Gazprom, the major external factor was a decline in our consumers’ demand and hence – a substantial reduction of the cash flow. Moreover, the global financial markets were actually closed in the first half of 2009.

Gazprom had to take drastic measures to maintain the stability of its activities and the ability to implement strategic projects.

Making every single challenge of the time an opportunity to develop the Company – that is how Gazprom’s task for last year may be formulated”.
