The 24th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum


Over a hundred discussions are planned in the SPIEF 2021 business programme architecture. The 24th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will take place on 2-5 June 2021. The central theme of the Forum is A Collective Reckoning of the New Global Economic Reality.

The main part of the SPIEF 2021 business programme includes more than a hundred events divided into four tracks touching upon the issues of global and Russian economy, as well as social and technological agenda. Business sessions will be broadcast on Forum platforms so that participants from the countries where travelling is limited due to measures against the spread of the coronavirus have access to discussions. A number of special sessions will be available in recording.

Joining Forces to Advance Development will be the key track of the business programme. It will include sessions on economic recovery and international cooperation, including discussions on Eurasian integration, transformation of global trade, effectiveness of business during the pandemic, global energy market, recovery of food market, and sustainability of national healthcare systems.

The second theme block of the business programme is devoted to national development targets. Sessions under this track touch upon the transition from the anti-crisis agenda to strengthening the long-term potential of the economy, investment climate in Russian regions, shaping of Russian research and technology space, development of the financial market, creation of circular economy, and functioning of strategically important industries.

Apart from the main business programme, SPIEF will also host the SME Forum, Youth Economic Forum, SCO, BRICS and ASEAN events, B20 Regional Consultation Forum, Creative Business Forum and Drug Safety and Security Forum, as well as events on Arctic and African agenda.
