The St. Petersburg summit aims to strengthen cooperations between African countries and the Russian Federation.
The event will be led by the Russian President, Vladmir Putin and the President of Comoro, Azali Assoumani who also doubles as the Chairman of the African Union (AU).
The Russia–Africa Summit is the highest-profile and largest-scale event in Russian–African relations, aimed at bringing about a fundamentally new level of mutually beneficial partnership to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
The goal of the event is to promote efforts to strengthen comprehensive and equal cooperation between Russia and African nations across all areas of society including politics, security, economic relations, science and technology, and the cultural and humanitarian spheres.
Equally, the Premier will also participate in the International Economic and Humanitarian Forum which will focus on four main contents which are, the New Global Economy, Integrated Security, Science and Technology and Humanitarian Issues.
Tanzania stands a chance to benefit from the forum as it will have the opportunity to collaborate with Russia and other African countries in seeking commercial cooperation, promoting the economy and addressing development challenges.
