This information was expressed by the advisor to the President of the Russian Federation, executive secretary of the SPIEF organizing committee, Anton Kobyakov.

“Such a significant presence of numerous foreign delegations and business representatives once again confirmed that there is no question of any international isolation of Russia,” Kobiakov said.

This year the forum had a record number of participants, despite various sanctions. Guests at SPIEF 2024 discussed international trade and cooperation, sales markets, technological leadership and investment.

The President of Bolivia, Luis Alberto Arce Catacora, the leader of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, the President of Abkhazia, Aslan Bzhania, and the head of the Republika Srpska, Milorad Dodik, attended Saint Petersburg.
