Dialogue with the World Economic Forum to be continued in Saint Petersburg
A meeting has taken place in Geneva between Alexander Stuglev, Chief Executive Officer of the Roscongress Foundation, and Børge Brende, President of the Managing Board of the World Economic Forum. They discussed the opportunities for further cooperation within the forum format, particularly at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum and the World Economic Forum in Davos.
"We have a positive experience working together while organizing the Russia House in Davos. We expect our partners to actively participate in the events of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. I am confident that SPIEF 2018 will become yet another example of successful cooperation with our colleagues. We have had close ties for several years, and we will work to maintain and strengthen them in the future”, Alexander Stuglev noted.
In 2018, the Roscongress Foundation organized the Russia House in Davos as Russia's official residence. It became possible due to the memorandum on cooperation signed between the Roscongress Foundation and the World Economic Forum, international organization for public-private partnership, at SPIEF 2017. Over a thousand people visited the Russia House. For more information, see the Russia House official website houserussia.com.
The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will take place on 24–26 May.
