In 2017 the Forum was honoured to receive Prime Minister of Gabon Emmanuel Issoze-Ngondet, Vice-President of Zimbabwe Phelekezela Mphoko, Vice-President of Burundi Joseph Butore, Angola’s Minister of Economy Abraão Gurgel, Mozambique Minister of Transport and Communications Carlos Alberto Mezquita, South African Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry Bulelani Magwanishe, Republic of Guinea’s Minister of Mines and Geology Saadu Nimaga and Namibia’s Deputy Minister of Industrialization, Trade and SME Development Petrus Jacobus Van Der Valt.

According to Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation and Executive Secretary of the SPIEF Organizing Committee the upcoming Forum will hold two special celebrations marking the occasions related to the continent: Africa Day and the 55th anniversary of the African Union.

“Economic cooperation between Russia and Africa has been developing rapidly during recent years. We have seen a positive dynamic in trade with Ethiopia, Cameroon, Angola, Sudan, Zimbabwe and other countries”, says Mr. Kobyakov. “I strongly believe that Russian-African cooperation at SPIEF, Russia’s largest forum will stimulate trade and economic ties, as well as investment activity”.
