SPIEF 2015 Forum Theme: ‘Time to Act: Shared Paths to Stability and Growth’

The 19th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will once again bring together heads of states and governments, political leaders, CEOs and senior executives of major Russian and international companies, leading experts, media representatives as well as government delegations from key economies on June 18–20, 2015. The theme of this year’s Forum will be Time to Act: Shared Paths to Stability and Growth.

The business programme will be marked by a variety of international events and formats. St. Petersburg has been chosen as the platform for key international events of this year’s business agenda: the SCO and BRICS Business Forums and the G20 Advisory Forum. The Forum will include an Energy Summit with the heads of energy companies, a Media Summit, and a Young Leaders Forum. New formats such as SPIEF DEBATE will be coupled with traditional panel discussions, briefings, TV debates, arena debates, seminars, round tables, business breakfasts, ‘Conversations with the Extraordinary’– which taken together promise to create a rich and engaging platform for the exchange of ideas and insights on some of the most pressing issues confronting global economics and business.

The discussions will cover four main topics of the programme:

  • GLOBAL ECONOMY: NEW CHALLENGES AND SHIFTING HORIZONS
  • RUSSIA: SEIZING THE OPPORTUNITIES
  • HUMAN CAPITAL AND TALENT DEVELOPMENT
  • DISRUPTORS: TRENDS AND TECHNOLOGIES

The SPIEF agenda is developed with the input from leading business, economics and finance figures; representatives of professional business associations, media leaders and think tanks; and prominent government figures and experts the world over. Detailed information: www.forumspb.com
