Sheikh Hamed also met with senior officials of the Russian government and a number of executive financial directors of investment bodies, and discussed a number of economic and investment issues of common interest and means of diversifying the sector to serve global economic growth.

The three-day event is being held at the ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre in St Petersburg, under the theme ‘Creating an Economy of Trust’, and is attracting more than 10,000 participants from over 120 countries.
