June 16 in the post-treatment left stamp dedicated to the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum


The St Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) is a large economic and business conference held annually since 1997. The Forum has become a leading international platform for the discussion of the key economic issues facing Russia, emerging markets and the world as a whole. Since 2006, SPIEF has been held under the auspices of the President of the Russian Federation, who has also attended each event.

Each year, SPIEF attracts over 10,000 international and Russian participants, including government and business leaders, as well as leading global voices from academia, the media, and civil society.

The main events of the 20th St Petersburg International Economic Forum will take place on June 16–18, 2016 at a new venue, the ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The postage stamp features the SPIEF marks against the background of St Petersburg landmarks.
