On June 16–18, the 20th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum "Capitalizing on the New Global Economic Reality" was held, bringing together more than 12,000 participants from 133 countries, including media representatives. For the first time in our history, the Bank became a partner of SPIEF Business Programme.

The delegation of Societe Generale Group under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer Frédéric Oudéa and Rosbank delegation headed by the Chairman of the Management Board Dmitry Olyunin visited the largest business event of the year in St. Petersburg. The delegation from Rosbank also included two Deputy Chairmen of the Management Board - Ilya Polyakov and Ulan Ilishkin. During two days our delegates conducted several dozens of meetings and negotiations.

This year we were able to support the plenary session "The Advent of New Technology Platforms and the Impact on Banking", in which one of the speakers was Dmitry Olyunin. The urgency of the problems was illustrated by the number of panelists (10 speakers), and a keen interest in the topic of the audience in the conference hall. Frédéric Oudéa, in his turn, took part in a panel discussion on re-globalization problems.
