Specialists from the fields of economics, international cooperation, regional development, and the digital economy and representing institutions such as the Saint Petersburg State University of Economics, Lomonosov Moscow State University, and the Institute for Regional Economic Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences helped to compile the collection of analytical materials.
Doctor of Economic Sciences, Professor and Rector of the Saint Petersburg State University of Economics Igor Maksimtsev served as editor-in-chief of the collection.
“SPIEF is an event with a global reach. Each year at the Forum, the Saint Petersburg State University of Economics holds business discussions in the area of humanitarian and educational cooperation. We are moving forward and looking to the future, while actively accumulating the knowledge that is most sought-after today. Over 50 experts from our university were working at the Forum, and we are grateful to the organizers for the trust they have placed in us. I am certain that this special edition of Izvestia, which contains numerous expert findings, will strengthen the research potential of the Forum and push its agenda forward,” said Igor Maksimtsev, Rector of the Saint Petersburg State University of Economics.
It should be noted that the Roscongress Foundation is working actively to develop cooperation with representatives of the expert community. Expert groups made up of staff from leading Russian and international universities and research institutes, trusted credit rating agencies and consulting firms prepare studies and analytical reports on the business agendas of key Forum events, which are published on the ROSCONGRESS.ORG Information and Analytical System.
The materials cover a wide range of themes: economics, politics, the social sphere, international cooperation, regional development, finance, and the digital economy.
