In the framework of St. Petersburg international economic forum (SPIEF) resumes business dialogue between Russia and the United States, said the Governor Georgy Poltavchenko in an interview to the leading news agencies of Russia.

St. Petersburg international economic forum will be held this year June 1-3.

Poltavchenko has reminded that this year the main theme of the forum will be the search for a new balance in the global economy, stated the four main topics for discussion: «Dynamics of the global economy», «Shaping the agenda of the Russian economy», «Technology changing reality» and «Human capital as a key vector of development».
