MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. New Opportunities for the Far East in a Changed World will be the key topic of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) to be held in Vladivostok on September 2-4, 2021, the Roscongress Foundation says in its press release on Tuesday, referring to the business program of the Forum.
"The president has declared the development of the Far East a national priority for the entire 21st century. In fulfilling the president’s decision, the government has created a comprehensive, dynamically developing investment support system in the Far East," said Yuri Trutnev, the Russian Deputy Prime Minister and the Chairman of the EEF Organizing Committee.
"The EEF 2021 business program is divided into four thematic pillars: ‘The New Economy: What Changes and What Stays the Same’, ‘The Far East: New Challenges and Opportunities’, ‘Our Shared Responsibility in a Changing World’, and ‘Youth EEF’. The key event of the EEF will be the plenary session scheduled for 3 September," Roscongress informs.
"The Eastern Economic Forum has become one of the key tools for supporting the Far East. Its main objective is to attract investors and get feedback from business. More than 2,500 new projects and 1.9 trillion rubles in investments already made are an indisputable proof that the Far East has become a comfortable and safe territory for doing business," Trutnev noted.
"The international events to be held at the EEF include a discussion of the Greater Eurasian Partnership as an effective integration mechanism as well as the APEC Conference on Cooperation in Higher Education in Asia-Pacific Region and an international conference dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and Mongolia," Roscongress said.
The EEF 2021 will also include business dialogues of Russia-ASEAN, Russia-Korea, Russia-Japan, Russia-China, Russia-India, and Russia-Europe, the Foundation said.
