  • Published in Economy
Participation of Yakutia in 3rd Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok September 6-7 will cost 20 million rubles of the republic's budget. This fact was commented by the head of the External Relations Department of Yakutia Vladimir Vasiliev.

"Participation in the EEF is strategically important and promising for the development of the economy of the republic and the country as a whole,” stressed Vladimir Vasiliev, noting that the presentation of investment projects at the Forum guarantees the sustainability of the strategic dialogue with the APR countries.

Vladimir Vasiliev reminded that a number of agreements are signed annually at the site of the Eastern Economic Forum following the results of business negotiations. So, last year, 15 agreements were signed with large companies to implement priority projects of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) for more than 325 billion rubles.

"In other words, the costs of Yakutia's participation in the EEF-2017 will pay off many times. They will return in the form of investments of significant value,"- assured Vasiliev.

This year, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) will present a pavilion-exposition with a zone of trade in jewelry and souvenirs, a sports ground, a photo exhibition dedicated to the 385th anniversary of Yakutia's entry into the Russian state and other objects. Visitors will be able to learn about the priority projects of the republic in the field of transport infrastructure, agro-industrial complex, high technologies and energy.

Also in the pavilion there will be a zone for presentation of tourist potential to promote the tourist potential of Yakutia, where one can get acquainted with the main natural sights of Yakutia with the help of virtual reality glasses.

On the territory of the pavilion it is planned to place a sports ground where competitions will be held to familiarize with the Yakut national sports and promote healthy lifestyle.

Nine entities of the Far Eastern Federal District will take part in the exhibition – the Amur, Magadan, Sakhalin Regions, the Jewish Autonomous Region, the Kamchatka, Primorsky and Khabarovsk Territories, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the Chukotka Autonomous District. Each region develops a unique concept for its pavilion, where guests and forum participants can learn about the cultural and historical traditions, natural resources, tourism and investment potential of the region.
