President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin signed the executive order “On the Development Goals of the Russian Federation through 2030 and for the Future Until 2036”.

The document defines directions and target indicators to ensure sustainable economic and social development of the Russian Federation, strengthening of the state, cultural and value and economic sovereignty, increasing the country’s population and improving the living standards of its citizens, based on traditional Russian spiritual and moral values and the principles of patriotism, the priority of the individual, social justice and equality of opportunity, ensuring state security and public safety, openness to the outside world, economic development based on fair competition, entrepreneurship and private initiative, high efficiency and technological sophistication.

“In this regard, it is important to note that the development goals announced by the decree are reflected in the architecture of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2024 business programme. Each track includes events aimed at a comprehensive discussion of Russia's current development challenges, its role and place in the new structure of the global economy and international relations, and strategies for implementing national ideas. Among other things, the Forum’s agenda will focus on Russia’s strategy for saving people’s lives and improving the quality of life of its citizens as one of the key factors in strengthening Russia,” noted Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation and Executive Secretary of the SPIEF Organizing Committee.

Thus, the issues of population preservation, health promotion and improvement of people’s well-being, family support, creation of opportunities to fulfil each person’s potential, development of their talents, education of a patriotic and socially responsible personality will be touched upon within the framework of the track ‘Healthy Society, Traditional Values and Social Development: The Priority of the State’. One of the important topics of this track will also be the discussion of strategies for creating a comfortable and safe living environment and achieving environmental well-being of the country.

The tracks ‘Goals and Objectives of Russia’s New Economic Cycle’ and ‘Technologies Ensuring Leadership’ will reveal the possibilities of sustainable and dynamic development of the Russian economy, tools and programmes for achieving technological leadership, as well as talk about the implementation of national projects in the digital transformation of state and municipal administration, economy and social sphere.
