Moscow has opened a new venue to discuss T&I issues: Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration hosted the forum Global Dialogue on 13-14 April. Ekaterina Pokholkova, Dean of the Translation and Interpreting Faculty of the Moscow State Linguistic University (MSLU), and other MSLU trainers contributed immensely to organizing the event and forming its agenda. There were heated discussions, the groundwork was laid for new interpretation research projects. The highlight for the event was set by Pavel Palazhchenko, an experienced interpreter with vast international experience, who stressed the necessity of impeccable interpretation at any level. Young interpreters actively took part: there were many participants from different cities of Russia, and the final plenary was marked by presentations of young talented professionals.  The participants took notice of the excellent presentations of Anna Mikhailuk (Balashova) and Grigory Khaustov – both SCIT graduates. The School itself was fondly remembered on several occasions by veterans of the diplomatic service as well as by outstanding professionals and colleagues from Russian universities. SCIT was represented by director Irina Alexeeva.
