Dear participants and guests,
I am pleased to welcome you at the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum, which has once again become a unique discussion platform bringing together leading lawyers, scholars, government and business representatives from different countries.
Speakers and moderators will discuss professional issues of law improvement, digital law and justice, tax and antitrust regulation. And, of course, modernization of law in the changing world will be one of the main topics this year. The coronavirus has taken millions of lives and poses a serious threat to all of humanity, negatively affecting the social and economic development of states.
Russia is active in the fight against this dangerous disease and a lot has been done to counteract the epidemic. Our country was one of the first to develop and introduce vaccines and begin mass vaccination of Russian citizens. Thanks to this tremendous work we managed to improve the epidemiological situation and reduce the number of people affected by the disease.
