    The heads of about ten Emirati companies are planning to take part in the St.Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), chairman of the Russian Business Council in Dubai Igor Egorov said Tuesday.

    DUBAI (Sputnik) — He added that a round-table discussion and a separate Middle East session were planned at the forum. Egorov also explained that forming a larger Emirati delegation was impossible as the holy month of Ramadan coincided with the forum.

    "As of today, about ten participants at the top level, including large companies such as DP World and Emmar, are going to participate and have confirmed it, and the Dubai Chamber of Commerce [is going to participate in the forum]," Egorov told RIA Novosti.

    The SPIEF-2016 will be held on June 16-18. The forum is organized annually and attended by business representatives and officials from dozens of countries.
