St. Petersburg International Economic Forum to take place this month from 6th-8th

Published on : Tuesday, June 4, 2019

Before the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF-2019), government officials and tourism experts are considering systematic ways to eliminate barriers, take up marketing strategies for improving the current inbound tourism figures and get effective institutional organizations for boosting Russia’s image.

 

The SPIEF-2019, with the theme ‘Creating a Sustainable Development Agenda,’ will take place this month from 6-8 in St. Petersburg.

 

The inauguration ceremony of the Forum on June 6 will be attended by UN Secretary-General António Guterres, Eurasian Economic Commission Chairman of the Board Tigran Sargsyan, President of Moldova Igor Dodon, and Russian First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov. The meeting will be moderated by NBC News correspondent Keir Simmons.

 

Olga Golodets, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation said that each year, the tourism industry adds points of interest. In 2018, domestic tourism flows totalled 60 million people. Inbound tourism to the Russian Federation was over 24 million.

 

“Any infrastructural changes or transport changes immediately lead to an increase in the flow of tourism. With the construction of the Crimean Bridge, we see how much the flow of tourism has increased to the Republic of Crimea over the last year – by 29%. Crimea ranked the fifth region in the Russian Federation in terms of the number of winter visits, the flow of tourists is changing following changes in infrastructure,” said Golodets.
