Russian President Vladimir Putin Meets with World Economic Forum Chairman Klaus Schwab

Russian President Vladimir Putin met with World Economic Forum Executive chairman Klaus Schwab in St. Petersburg.

During the meeting, Putin noted the importance and significant benefits of the World Economic Forum in Davos as an international platform that supports people in their efforts to work openly within the framework of existing international law and establish contacts between business people and government officials.

“We have always maintained relations with your forum that you founded and we will continue to support it. And, of course, Russian representatives have always taken part and will take part in the events you hold. For our part, we are holding similar events, which, of course, aim to establish business contacts with Russia’s partners above all else. You know we are holding the St. Petersburg Economic Forum here in St. Petersburg as well as in the Far East, in Siberia, and in southern Russia”, Putin said. 

Schwab noted that the World Economic Forum and Russia have had a high level of cooperation for many years: “It has always been important for me that Russian representatives take part in our events in Davos. This has always been of particular importance to me [...]. Our goal, as you already mentioned, is to strengthen cooperation between business people and government agencies. We are convinced that the significant challenges that we face today, be it climate and environmental problems or problems of economic growth, can only be solved through cooperation, specifically at the global level”.
