The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) is a unique event in the world of business and economics. SPIEF has been held since 1997, and since 2006, it has been held under the auspices of the President of the Russian Federation, who has also attended each event.
Every year, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum serves as a platform for the discussion of key issues in the world economy, regional integration, and the development of new industrial and technological sectors, as well as of the global challenges facing Russia and other nations.
Events at the Forum traditionally take place in the form of panel sessions, roundtables, televised debates, business breakfasts, and business dialogues devoted to Russia’s relationships with various countries. Major Russian and international companies with Forum Partner status have the opportunity to present their products and services and organize themed networking areas. The SPIEF Investment & Business Expo is a platform at the Forum venue where companies can showcase their promising Russian and international investment projects, B2B solutions, and technologies.
SPIEF participants include representatives from business communities, heads of international organizations, public officials, experts, scientists, and journalists.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Emmanuel Macron, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde are among the participants of the forum.
Held annually since 1997, and under the auspices of the Russian president since 2005, SPIEF is a leading business event for the global economic sector. The forum brings together the heads of international organisations, well-known public figures, leading academics, experts and the media.
