In order to expand contacts between the business communities of the two countries, the Russian side offered to include members of the official Myanmar delegation as speakers in the business programme of the Eastern Economic Forum.

Representatives of the Republic of Myanmar planned to sign Memoranda between the relevant ministries of the two countries to increase trade and economic relations between the two countries and develop political, as well as military-technical cooperation on the sidelines of the EEF-2022.

«We are pleased with the invitation and aim to achieve fruitful cooperation during the Eastern Economic Forum. Russia and Myanmar have good and friendly relations. I am confident that the work of the delegation at the Forum will contribute to the emergence of new joint projects in the Far East,» stressed U Lwin Oo.

Traditionally strategically important agreements aimed at improving mutually beneficial relations are concluded on the sidelines of the WEF. So, one of them in 2021 was a Memorandum of cooperation between the Ros Congress Foundation and the Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

The Eastern Economic Forum will take place on 5–8 September 2022.
