St. Petersburg Governor Vladimir Yakovlev will hold a meeting on April 11 with representatives of the St. Petersburg administration and the group of Finnish advisors (GFS). At the meeting the GFS will give EUR 100,000 to St. Petersburg's Children's Hospital No.3. The money is to be used to acquire new beds, bedside tables, bedding, and clothes for children of all ages.
The group of Finnish advisors (GFS) is an unofficial collective of representatives of leading Finnish companies. It has worked with the St. Petersburg city administration since 1997. The group's main aim is to help establish a favourable investment climate in St. Petersburg for attracting foreign and Russian capital.
