Shell Group has appointed Steven Fries as its chief economist to be based in The Hague.

Mr Fries joins from the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development where he was deputy chief economist and acting chief economist.

He takes up the post on July 1.

He is knowledgeable on Russia, an important territory for Shell, and emerging countries.

Mr Fries is regarded as intelligent and meticulous, if a little reticent in his public pronouncements.

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen

    I am Professor of Economics at the Central Asian campus of London School of Economics in Almaty, Kazkhstan. At the moment I am organising a major conference on ‘Instition Building and Economic Development in Central Asia’ in June 2008. I would like to invite Steven Fries as a roundtable panelist. May I ask you to provide his email adress?

    Thanks and best wishes
