Qatar Airways to participate in St. Petersburg International Economic Forum

Qatar Airways will be one of the international companies attending the upcoming St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), scheduled to take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, from 2-5 June.

Now in its 24th edition, SPIEF is one of the largest investment and economy-focused event of its kind in the world and will feature the State of Qatar as a guest country.

Held under the patronage of the Russian President Mr. Vladimir Putin every year, SPIEF is organised by Roscongress Foundation and convenes individuals from leading Russian and international companies, political figures, and business leaders from around the world.

The State of Qatar’s honorary position at the Forum as a guest country demonstrates the dedication and commitment of both countries to further cement their existing economic, cultural and tourism relations.

Qatar Airways group chief executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) is a hugely important global event, and economic development will be of paramount importance following the damage done by the pandemic.

“Qatar Airways is proud to be among the key drivers of trade between the State of Qatar and the Russian Federation, as demonstrated by our continuous commitment to the Russian market throughout the years.

“We are looking forward to welcoming guests and visitors to our exhibition stand, where they can experience our world-class products and hospitality firsthand.”
