  • SPIEF has been held since 1997. Over the years, it has turned into one of the biggest international economic forums in the world. Its participants include heads of state and government, executives of international companies and organizations as well as leading global experts that include representatives of science, the media and civil society.
  • One of the guest countries at SPIEF 2017 will be India as represented by Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, which is fully consistent with the mutual desire of Russia and India to develop their exclusive bilateral strategic partnership. In addition, official delegations from other countries as well as UN Secretary-General António Guterres and others are expected to attend this year’s Forum.
