Россия-Египет: в Москве обсудили ход подготовки к юбилейному Петербургскому международному экономическому форуму

A meeting has been held in Moscow between Alexander Stuglev, Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Roscongress Foundation, and Nazih El Nagari, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Arab Republic of Egypt to the Russian Federation.

Over the past few years, relations between the two countries have gone from strength to strength in a whole range of areas. And now, in the Year of Humanitarian Cooperation, there are plans to hold an unprecedented number of joint events – around 200 in total.

 Nonetheless, the main purpose of the meeting was to discuss progress made in preparation for the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2022, where Egypt will enjoy honorary guest country status.

“It’s clear that Egypt has made considerable efforts in preparing the exhibition stand, the business programme and, just as importantly, the cultural programme. For our part, we will make every effort to assist you. This year, the Forum won’t just be hosting representatives of government agencies, business communities and experts. We have been developing youth programmes through the Roscongress Foundation network and can now safely say that we are catering to all age groups, from young children participating in Point Junior to business leaders and entrepreneurs involved in Friends for Leadership, along with a cluster of young academics,” said Alexander Stuglev.

A separate topic for discussion was the construction of a national pavilion for Egypt, which will have a total area of 506 m2.

For us, we really appreciate being the guest country at SPIEF 2022, as this will strengthen our cooperation with Russia in all sectors and showcase our potential in investment, tourism, and various sectors of the Egyptian economy. Participating in the Forum will provide opportunities to both sides for joint business, which will strengthen trade and economic relations between our two countries,” said Nazih El Nagari.  

The 25th Jubilee of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will be held on 15–18 June 2022.
