President Stig Enemark attended Geo-Siberia 2009, the Fifth International Exhibition and Scientific Congress, Novosibirsk, 20-24 April 2009 – invited by Alexander Karpik, Rector of the Siberian State Academy of Geodesy being the organiser of the conference.

The Geo-Siberia 2009 attracted about 1,500 participants from about 130 organisations and companies and from 15 foreign countries. In his opening speech president Enemark mentioned that “Geo-Siberia has in less than five years grown to become an important platform to demonstrate the latest achievements in technology and methods in surveying and GIS management. By combining a large scale exhibition with an international conference Geo-Serbia gives an excellent opportunity for professionals in Siberia, in Russia, the Central Asian Region and from overseas to discuss issues that are essential to not only the professionals but to society as a whole”.

Furthermore a special seminar addressed the issue of “Integrating land management, cadastre and geodesy in the Central Asian Countries”. President Enemark gave the keynote address at this seminar to address this core issue for both Russia and the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States). Unfortunately representatives of the CIS could not attend the seminar due to financial constraints. But FIG will still aim to support the CIS countries in Central Asia to join the global surveying community.

FIG believes that Geo-Siberia is an important platform of cooperation with Russia and the Central Asian Countries. FIG will lend its support to develop this annual event further in the future for the benefit of Russia, The Central Asian Region and the global surveying community.
