«In many senses, SPIEF-2018 exceeded last year’s results – we saw a record number of attendees and signed agreements. I’m certain that this potential will be tapped into as preparations for SPIEF-2019 go underway, and that the next Forum will provide its guests and participants with even more business opportunities in an atmosphere of complete trust», – said Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation, Executive Secretary of the SPIEF Organising Committee A.A. Kobyakov.
