Meeting Held in St. Petersburg on Preparations for the SCO and BRICS Summits

On 15 August 2019, an interdepartmental meeting was held in St. Petersburg chaired by Anton Kobyakov, Russian Presidential Advisor, Vice-Chairman and Executive Secretary of the Organizing Committee for preparing and providing for the presidency of the Russian Federation in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation in 2019–2020 and in the BRICS association in 2020. The meeting discussed organizational aspects of preparing the Northern Capital for hosting the Summits, in particular accommodation of event participants, catering, security, etc.

«St Petersburg has tremendous experience of holding the biggest events in our country. Every year, the Northern Capital hosts global international events: this year alone, there have already been the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum and the International Arctic Forum, and, in the autumn, the city will welcome the biggest event of the world tourism industry — the UNWTO General Assembly. I am sure that consolidation of the efforts of all departments will allow us to prepare the entire necessary infrastructure, in the shortest time, for successfully holding the SCO and BRICS Summits», Anton Kobyakov noted. The Russian Presidential Advisor also announced that no additional structures would be built in connection with the Summits.

The meetings culminated in additional instructions being issued by sector and the deadlines for fulfilling them set.

Previously, the working group had visited a number of proposed Summit venues.
