SPIEF results. Investment climate of the Russian North-West
On Monday, June 20, 2016, a joint event of Kelly Services and SPIBA took place at the Lumiere Hall creative space, in the form of a discussion on “Investment climate of North-West,” which was to some extent a result of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). Managing Partner of Capital Legal Services Vladislav Zabrodin was invited as a moderator for the discussion.
The meeting was attended by such widely known companies as Bentley, Colliers International, Danone, Henkel, Swedvilla, Land, Petrovich, Russian Standard Bank and others.
Vladislav Zabrodin’s discussion partners were Commercial Director of Wrigley Aleksey Zhukov, PR Director of Megafon North West Branch Kermen Mandziev, Director of Communications of Ulmart Brian Kean and Branch Manager of Citibank in St. Petersburg Ruslan Belyaev.
The participants of the discussion shared their impression of the SPIEF which was held this year for 20th time. Compared to previous years, the main change was in the new modern Expoforum ground in Shushary. The following key events took place during the forum: joint interview with Vladimir Putin, Narsultan Nazarbaev and Matteo Renzi, visit of Jean-Claude Juncker and potential implementation of the Hyperloop project.
