Our partners and international guests will participate in the panel discussions focused on finding business solutions to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals and drive the Russian economy forward, as well as discussing global economic issues, corporate health programs, ways of reducing middle class concerns, and proactive migration policies aimed at development and attracting investment.
Every year, SPIEF attracts the leading decision makers of emerging markets to identify and discuss the key challenges that Russia, emerging markets, and the world are currently facing. Over the past decade, the forum has become a leading global platform for business.
