Putin to Address Forum

Vladimir Putin will deliver a speech as the new Kremlin leader at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum next month, and investors will have a chance to meet the new Cabinet, a presidential aide said Friday.

The forum will run June 21 to 23.

"President Putin will make a speech, and the new Cabinet will be presented," Kremlin economic aide Arkady Dvorkovich said in an interview with RT television. "The new ministers will take part, so businessmen will be able to talk with the new members of the government." Dvorkovich also said changes in government policy would be announced and discussed with investors at the forum.
