Support of business events
Sberbank, as systemically important financial institution of the country, traditionally takes part in the leading industry events and economic forums.
In 2016, Sberbank acted as a partner to the Eastern Economic Forum dedicated to the economic potential and investment attractiveness of the Far East. Sberbank took part in the meeting of the Russian-Chinese Financial Council, where a number of agreements and memoranda of cooperation were signed.
The International Investment Forum in Sochi is a venue for presenting the economic and investment potential of the country, which gathers representatives of national and foreign business and of the investment community. Sberbank was not only a partner of the Forum but also took active part in its work. For example, during the meeting of the work group led by Deputy Chairman of the Government of Russia Dmitry Kozak, Sberbank’s proposal to create packaged industry solutions for the projects of public and private partnership was supported and approved at the highest level. Sberbank also signed two Agreements with regions (Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District and Yaroslavl Region) and carried on negotiations with the heads of the Chelyabinsk, Sverdlovsk, and Vladimir Regions and the Republic of Bashkortostan on the implementation of joint projects.
During the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum, which is one of the largest venues for the communication of the world business elite, Sberbank signed 18 cooperation agreements. Sberbank was a general partner of the Forum, as it has been since 2008.
