To the Honorary President of the Free Economic Society,

Gavriil Kharitonovich Popov

Dear Gavriil Kharitonovich,

I send you my heartfelt congratulations on your 80th birthday.

The Russian academic community knows you as a leading scholar and administrator in the fields of Economics and Management, and as the author of numerous books and articles that have had an enormous influence on the study of modern social and economic processes. 

You have built a career in which you have blended your multifaceted and ambitious research agenda with accomplishments both in the classroom and in public service.  I especially appreciate the contributions you have made to the revival of the Free Economic Society of Russia, which was originally founded under the patronage of my ancestor, Empress Catherine II the Great.  As head of the Free Economic Society, you have done much to develop Russian traditions of judicious and responsible management and to strengthen international economic and cultural cooperation.

I wish you health, many years, and God’s help in all your future endeavors.

My son and heir, the Grand Duke George of Russia, joins me in offering you our warmest birthday congratulations.

Remaining ever yours sincerely,

H.I.H. the Grand Duchess Maria of Russia
