Russian and Chinese companies may sign some landmark contracts during the upcoming St. Petersburg Economic Forum (SPIEF) and Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to China, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Monday.

SOCHI (Sputnik) — Putin is expected to visit China in June. Earlier in May, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov said that Putin planned to sign a large number of documents, in particular in the energy field, during his upcoming visit to China.

"I do not rule out the signing of landmark contracts [with China at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum] and during the president's visit to China. Different companies prepare [for that]. All these contacts are commercial and that is why I cannot name them or comment," Dvorkovich told journalists.

The SPIEF is an international economic and business event, which attracts politicians, entrepreneurs, scientists and media from all over the world to discuss the most significant issues for Russia and the global community. The next SPIEF forum is scheduled for June 16-18.
