Sberbank is also hosting a reception, "Sberbank Night," followed by a business breakfast on Jan. 24 with a discussion on "State institutions or a strong government: What is more important for economic growth?"

Sberbank has been a strategic partner of the World Economic Forum since 2008. In 2009, Gref became a member of the International Business Council that operates as part of the Forum. In 2011, he was elected to the board of directors of the World Economic Forum.
