Russia’s New Areas of Growth: the Future Belongs to Mono-Industry Cities
The “Russian Regions: New Areas of Growth” field session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will be held on May 24, 2017 in Perm. The session is organized by Roscongress jointly with the Agency for Strategic Initiatives and the Russian Export Centre.

The field session in Perm will also concentrate on raising investments and make efficient use of the tools offered by the state and by development institutions. Experts from the Russian Export Centre will hold a briefing session on promoting Russian-made commodities on foreign markets and on implementing a comprehensive approach to providing services for exporters. A Plenary Session will also be held; Maxim Reshetnikov, Acting Governor of Perm Territory, Svetlana Chupsheva, General Director of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives, Alexander Stuglev, CEO of the Roscongress Foundation, local officials, heads of businesses and leading Russian experts will be among the participants.
