These and other events of 2012 are covered on the pages of this issue of the “Exchange Bulletin”. But first I would like to point out once again that many of them have been made possible because of us all – both exchange experts and, above all, the participants of exchange trade, who came to appreciate the effectiveness of the exchange mechanism and encourage us to search for and implement new instruments, that not just improve the level of exchange, but, in general, strengthen the reputation of our country.
I look forward to the same successful work in 2013!
