THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF THE ST. PETERSBURG INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC FORUM
One of the biggest and most important business events in the world. Over the past 25 years, the Forum has cemented its status as a leading international event focusing on key issues on the global economic agenda. It provides a platform for participants to exchange best practices and expertise in the interests of sustainable development.
SPIEF has been held annually since 1997. Since 2005, it has been held under the auspices of the President of the Russian Federation, who has also attended each event.
In 2021, SPIEF was the first business event of such magnitude to be held offline since the unavoidable break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Forum was also notable for its use of cutting-edge digital technology. The four-day event brought together more than 13,500 participants from 141 countries, including representatives of more than 1,000 media outlets from 46 countries. Among them were heads of state and government, senior executives of major corporations, and world-renowned experts in the fields of science and civil society.
The 2022 edition of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will feature Egypt as guest country.
As in previous years, the business programme will focus on the global and Russian economies, social issues, and technological development.
