Dear participants,


Please allow me to express my gratitude to all of those who participated in the 25th International Financial Congress, which took place from June 29 to July 1, 2016 under the theme The Future of Financial Markets.


This year, the Congress was held in a new, significantly expanded format, with five plenary sessions and 20 round tables, hosting discussions on global economic challenges, monetary policy, issues around regulation and oversight in the banking sector, the development of the insurance market, pooled investments, national payment infrastructure, and much more.


Over 1,000 attendees from 34 countries took part in Congress events, almost twice as many as in previous years, confirming once more that there is real demand for debate across various sectors of business. The Central Bank intends to continue running the Congress in its expanded format.


We hope that both the Congress business programme and the informal networking opportunities were useful and interesting, and that you brought home fond memories of St. Petersburg’s architecture and cultural heritage from your stay during the White Nights.


We would be grateful to receive any feedback and suggestions which could help us to make further improvements to the running of the International Financial Congress (info@ibcongress.com).


We hope to see you again in St. Petersburg next year at the 26th International Financial Congress.
