The Russian delegation intends to present Yekaterinburg’s application for hosting the World Universal Exhibition EXPO 2020 at the forum. The forum is attended by Vice Premier and Head of Russia’s EXPO 2020 Application Promotion Committee Arkady Dvorkovitch and the Director-General of the EXPO 2020 Coordination Committee Eric Bugulov.
