Sergey A. Storchak has been Deputy Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation since 2005. He was one of the principal negotiators for Russia in the successful restructuring of more than $100 billion in Soviet-era sovereign debt and currently has principal responsibility for Russia's relations with international financial institutions, including the IMF, the World Bank and the Paris Club.
Deputy Minister Storchak's appearance at Princeton immediately follows his participation in meetings of the IMF and World Bank in Washington. He is uniquely qualified to comment on Russia's perspectives on all aspects of the international financial system and will also speak about Russia's forthcoming role as 2013 chair of the G-20.
