The programme was recently released for this year’s St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, scheduled to take place from June 6 to 8 under the theme ‘Creating a Sustainable Development Agenda’.

SPIEF 2019 will feature business dialogues involving participants from Russia and members of foreign delegations from Austria, China, India, Italy, the United States, Finland, France, Switzerland and Africa, among others.

“Issues of the current state and prospects for sustainable development of the global economy are particularly relevant today, as many events in the world, such as the transformation of international economic unions, growing social inequality, unstable trade and political relations, are continuing to impact on the global economy,” said Anton Kobyakov, Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation, adding that environmental preservation will be a key discussion point at the Forum.

The structural programme of the Forum consists of four themed areas, ‘The Global Economy in Search of a Balance’, ‘Russian Economy: Achieving National Development Goals’, ‘Technologies shaping the future’, and ‘People first’. Several sessions will take place under each theme, covering a variety of key global issues including education, conservation, science and business on an international level.

The Forum is organized by The Roscongress Foundation, who focus on the development of Russia’s economic potential and organize international conventions, exhibitions, and public events to strengthen the country's image.

The Forum will also embrace the B20 Regional Consultation Forum, the Russia–China Energy Business Forum, International Youth Economic Forum, SCO Conference, SME Forum, and BRICS Conference, and a UNIDO Round Table will also take place to discuss the contribution made by female business leaders.
