Kudrin 'Best in Europe'

Alexei Kudrin was presented with the Finance Minister of the Year 2010 award by Euromoney magazine at the fall session of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in Washington.

Euromoney praised Kudrin’s efforts to form reserves from oil revenues while prices were growing, securing the creation of the reserve fund that allowed Russia to emerge from the global financial crisis in far better shape than experts had anticipated, said Padraic Fallon, chairman of Euromoney Institutional Investor, as he gave Kudrin the award Sunday.
