"We had museums in all company branches before the museum appeared in St. Petersburg as a major center. We have small formats called the room of combat and labour glory. We support and develop this activity," Maxim Lunev said.

Elena Zhuk, Deputy Director General of VDNH, recounted the history of the creation of the Exposition of National Economic Achievements, noting that the space of exhibition projects "has gained a foothold in the professional museum community."

"We have become members of the International Association and not only accept, but also participate in the "Corporate Museum" competition. Last year the "Museum City" project was awarded one of the prizes. This is very honorable for us. I would like to note that "Museum City" unites 26 sites, and its core is the "Corporate Museum"," said Elena Zhuk.

In turn, Ekaterina Mochalina, Advisor to the Director General of the "ATOM" Foundation, thanked the panelists for the productive dialog and spoke about the large exposition part of the "ATOM" Pavilion located at VDNH.
