MOSCOW (Sputnik)—Russia has an incredible human capital, which may be seen within Deloitte CIS, one of the Big Four professional services firms, as Ian Colebourne, the firm’s CEO, told Sputnik on Thursday on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).
"The human capital in the country is absolutely outstanding. We see that within our own business," Colebourne stated.
He praised the Deloitte regional team for its world-class capabilities, particularly in the spheres of science, engineering, math and technology.
Deloitte is a global network of member firms that provide audit & assurance, consulting, financial advisory, risk advisory, tax and related services to public and private clients spanning multiple industries. Deloitte’s headquarters are in New York and London with offices worldwide.
According to Colebourne, SPIEF is a major business event for Deloitte CIS and a chance to connect with clients from Russia and other countries.
"The forum is for us the main business event. It is a great opportunity for us to connect with international clients or Russian clients, clients in the public sector," Colebourne stated.
Colebourne added that the firm was hoping to gain an understanding of the economic strategy for the country at the forum. He stated that the Russian economy had overcome a period of volatility and was now stable, stressing that there was opportunity for growth. Investment in agriculture and food processing had been most notably on the rise and would continue to be "a theme," but other sectors, including light manufacturing, were also promising.
SPIEF is being held in Russia's second largest city from Thursday to Saturday. The event brings together politicians, business professionals and experts in various fields from different countries. Sputnik News Agency is an official media partner of the forum.
