ITAR-TASS has reported that the first contract signed at this year’s St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF-2014) was with IBM East Europe/Asia. Both sides will cooperate in the technical sphere to help realize joint initiatives for the planning and complex management of the city’s social and economic development – including monitoring the transport situation and public utilities.

Governor Georgy Poltavchenko has also suggested that IBM East Europe/Asia should expand its presence in Russia by opening laboratories and scientific centers in St. Petersburg. A similar laboratory is already active in Moscow.

There was no mention of how western sanctions on Russia might interfere with those plans….
