The Roscongress Foundation has stopped preparing business programme events for the Russia House project in Davos

The  decision due to the restrictions imposed on participation of Russian businessmen in the World Economic Forum.

Dmitry Medvedev made the first announcement that Russian public officials and parastatal companies may refrain from participating in the World Economic Forum in Davos. This statement was made in response to the organizers of the Forum in Davos pronouncing participation of Russia’s most important business people in the WEF unwelcome.

Despite this, global economy and its impact will be discussed during the St Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2019, which will take place on 6–8 June in St Petersburg and is expected to host representatives of all countries regardless of their political views.
