Yuri Trutnev held a meeting on the preparation of the Eastern Economic Forum – 2024

Deputy Prime Minister – Presidential Plenipotentiary Representative in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev held a meeting in Vladivostok on the preparation of the Eastern Economic Forum 2024. Organizational issues and the progress of preparations for the forum were discussed.

“Less than two months are left before the start of the IX Eastern Economic Forum, the importance of which for the macroregion is difficult to overestimate. Millions of investments came to the Far East thanks to the forum. Every year thousands of people from dozens of countries come to the EEF. The vector of Russia’s foreign economic relations is turned to the East, and the forum is held in its very center, in the heart of the Asia-Pacific region. This places special demands on our work,” Yuri Trutnev opened the meeting.

Deputy Director of the Roscongress Foundation, Director of the Eastern Economic Forum Igor Pavlov reported that, in general, preparations are being carried out as usual in accordance with the key dates approved by the organizing committee. On the starting day of the forum, Falcon Day will take place. The invitation campaign is active and confirmations are being received from participants.

The governor of the region Oleg Kozhemyako and the head of the capital of Primorye Konstantin Shestakov spoke about the preparation of the Primorsky Territory and the city of Vladivostok for the EEF, including the repair of the guest route, the improvement of the FEFU embankment, the holding of cultural and sports events, and medical support for the forum. As part of the maintenance of the road network, damage to the roadway has been repaired, traffic has been organized on the main and alternate routes, contracts have been concluded to restore the surface of the bridge crossing across the Zolotoy Rog Bay and the tunnel crossing in the area of the funicular ring, and to replace damaged railings. The city is being improved. Active sanitary cleaning of debris, pruning of green spaces, and planting of flower beds are carried out. Since the beginning of the summer season, more than 500 trees and 1.3 thousand shrubs have been planted in the city; before the start of the forum, an additional 2 thousand green spaces will be planted. Over 100 thousand bushes were molded. Work is underway to clean the storm drain.

The rector of the university, Boris Korobets, reported on the preparation of the campus and territory of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU).

“The Eastern Economic Forum is a landmark event for FEFU. For the university, this is an opportunity to host one of the most important international events, to declare itself as a center of science and education in the Asia-Pacific region, and to show the forum guests the comfortable environment created in our country for young people,” he said.

Preparation of the FEFU campus for the EEF is proceeding as planned: landscaping work is being completed, as well as renovation work in the educational, administrative and hotel buildings. “By the beginning of the forum, almost 1.2 thousand hotel rooms will be renovated. It is important that all these investments work to create a comfortable living environment for our students and staff. FEFU is known for its unique campus on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, and its annual renewal allows our campus to remain among the best,” said the FEFU Rector.

The cultural program of EEF 2024 includes concerts and exhibition events, a rich repertoire of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre, jazz evenings in Nagorny Park, and the participation of creative groups and individual performers on “Far East Street”. Thus, on the main stage of the exhibition there will be a concert of the Pacific Symphony Orchestra with the participation of orchestral musicians and choir artists from the People’s Republic of China. The Primorsky Territory pavilion offers daily daytime and evening programs presented in a maritime style. Also, this year the region is organizing for the first time the work of a “Fish Market” on “Far East Street” – mobile food points with tasting of fish products from Far Eastern companies.

The sports program includes the “We Take Care” track and field race, GTO Week, international rowing competitions, a chess tournament, and the Russian Cup in powerboating. This year the international Vladivostok regatta will take place for the third time, which will change its location from Novik Bay to the center of the seaside capital. Crews from China, North Korea and Russia will take part. The finishing line for yachts will be the Russian Bridge. The Minny Gorodok park will become a venue for equestrian competitions. The VEF Cup in the show jumping discipline will be competed by more than 100 athletes from the Far Eastern regions.

Volunteer training is being organized. Currently, over 2.5 thousand of them are registered in Primorye, including about a thousand from other regions. General theoretical training and exams were conducted at the Far Eastern Federal University, as well as instruction on sanitary and epidemiological issues. The Roscongress Foundation website provides online training, based on the results of which volunteers take a test to ensure they have mastered the material.

“We are preparing for the forum, as always, very carefully. The general mood is the same as before any Eastern Economic Forum: we will jointly try to ensure that it remains a place where new decisions are made that will contribute to the development of our Far East. Everyone who prepares the EEF must answer the question of how to make the forum better, more interesting, and more meaningful,” summed up Yuri Trutnev.

More than 7 thousand people from 62 countries and territories took part in the VIII Eastern Economic Forum. The forum included more than 100 sessions of the main business program. The largest delegations were sent by China, India, Myanmar, the Philippines, Laos, and Mongolia. On the sidelines of the forum, 373 agreements were signed for a total amount of 3 trillion 818 billion rubles.
