ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) - The 2024 edition of Russia's flagship international economic forum, SPIEF, took place from June 5–8 in St. Petersburg. Over 21,000 participants from 139 countries took part in the forum, SPIEF Organization Committee Secretary Anton Kobyakov has said.
The 2024 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) saw the signing of at least 1,073 agreements worth 6.492 trillion rubles ($73 billion), excluding the amounts that constitute a commercial secret, Russia's Roscongress Foundation, which organized the event, said on Monday.
"The Forum resulted in the signing of 1,073 agreements for a total of RUB 6.492 trillion (only including agreements whose amount does not constitute a commercial secret), including 55 with representatives of foreign companies," Roscongress said in a statement.
