Aleksei Gruzdev, General Commissioner of EXPO-2019 for Russia and Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, opened the National Exhibit. He stated,
"The Horticultural EXPO-2019 is hosted by the PRC, Russia's major trade and economic partner. Our cooperation with China is progressing dynamically, which is confirmed by foreign trade statistics. Russia's modern park culture is our point of pride. Indeed, Moscow currently has more greenspace than London or New York."
