ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (Sputnik) - The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum has become a full-fledged mechanism of Russia's national development over the years it has been held; its significance is already indisputable, Anton Kobyakov, an adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin, told Sputnik.
The number of participants on the first day of this year's edition of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) was similar to the number of those who attended all four days of SPIEF-2019, Kobyakov highlighted.

"We have similar numbers for the first day of the St. Petersburg forum in 2024 as for the entire St. Petersburg forum — four days — in 2019. In terms of the number of participants, as many in one day as for the entire 2019 forum," Kobyakov said.

The Russian city of St. Petersburg is hosting the 27th edition of the SPIEF from June 5-8. Last year, the forum drew 17,000 participants from 130 countries and saw the signing of more than 900 agreements.
