VLADIVOSTOK, June 9. /TASS/. The Third Far Eastern Media Summit opened on Thursday in Russia’s Far Eastern city of Vladivostok.
The summit brings together community leaders, officials and experts of the regional and federal levels, media people from Far East and Central Russia, as well as foreign colleagues from Japan, South Korea, China, the US and Europe, who will spend in Vladivostok two days discussing media-related issues.
"Three years ago we were getting ready for the first media summit and worried as to whether this platform will take hold," Primorye Governor Vladimir Miklushevsky said at a plenary session looking into the role of regional media in region’s development.
"We can now say definitely that a successful format was chosen. Not only journalists discuss among themselves the development of media sphere, but also authorities meet with media people," he added.
The first forum was held in summer 2014, bringing together more than 650 journalists, officers from press services of agencies and enterprises of the Russian Far East and countries of the Asia Pacific region. One year later, 1,900 guests and participants attended a second media summit.
