Yury Trutnev: Far East Street Exhibition to Showcase Life in the Far East

18 August 2022
Юрий Трутнев: «Улица Дальнего Востока» расскажет о Дальнем Востоке и чем он живет

Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Plenipotentiary Representative of the Russian President in the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev conducted a visual inspection of the Far East Street exhibition and observed the construction of its pavilions.

The exhibition will open on the embankment of Ajax Bay on 5 September, the first day of the Eastern Economic Forum, and will remain open until 11 September. It will showcase the unique features of the Far East, the economic potential of all eleven regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, as well as their tourism opportunities and cultural traditions. The regions will share the investment projects they have implemented as well as future projects with the Forum’s guests.

«The Far East Street was conceived eight years ago. At that time, we suggested to the governors that they show why people love their native land. Since then, the pavilions have changed a lot, and now they truly represent the history, culture, and nature of all the territories and regions of the Far Eastern Federal District. I think it’s important to demonstrate what the Far East is and what life is like there to the people coming to the Forum from all over Russia and guests from dozens of countries around the world,» Trutnev said.

This year, the exhibition will be held under the slogan ‘What Have You Done for Technological Victory of Russia?’. It will place special emphasis on presenting opportunities for import substitution and the technological independence of the Far East’s regions, as well as self-sufficiency in food.

«There’s a good reason why the Far East Street exhibition is a full-fledged part of the Eastern Economic Forum’s programme. In addition to the exposition component, it’s also an opportunity for each region of the Far Eastern Federal District to showcase itself to potential investors from different countries. This year, the exhibition will become a focal point for cultural, sports, and business events. I am certain that the Forum participants, as well as the residents and guests of Vladivostok, will be able to discover new facets of our Far East,» Eastern Economic Forum Director Igor Pavlov said.

In addition to its ongoing investment projects, the Far Eastern regions will present unique and breakthrough projects, as well as an exciting, distinctive cultural programme and traditional cuisine. Locally produced goods will be presented at all pavilions, tastings will be held at individual pavilions, and unique jewellery and local clothing brands will be sold.

The pavilions will also present some of the unique local developments and achievements that are being implemented by start-ups, and the expositions themselves will include extensive interactive layouts, separate booths with major investment projects, modern touch screens with content management panels, and virtual reality objects.

The expositions of the Far Eastern regions also feature numerous stationary and interactive animated photo zones, art objects, master classes, and exhibitions. The pavilions will also be illuminated at night in a bright and unusual manner.

«Today, the level of the exposition is so impressive that it would look presentable in any place. That’s why, before my trip to Vladivostok, I spoke with Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin about the possibility of restoring the Far East pavilion in our country’s capital. A few years ago, the Far East pavilion at the All-Russian Exhibition Centre [in Moscow] was badly damaged by fire and, alas, could not be restored. Looking at what our colleagues from the regions have already presented today, I realized that we won’t have to look for an exposition,» Trutnev said.

In addition, the Far East Street will include six industry pavilions this year. The Russian Ministry of Sports will have two pavilions: ‘Sport — a vital norm’ and the ‘Arena GTO’. The former will serve as a platform for productive discussions about the development of physical culture and sports. The ‘Arena GTO’ pavilion will be the centre of the Forum’s sporting events. For the first time, it will host the open international ‘GTO Games 2022’ Cup of the Far East, which will feature teams from the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, as well as some of the best athletes from all over Russia.

The exhibition will also include the Tiger House interactive pavilion, which is timed to coincide with the 2nd International Tiger Forum.

The pavilion of the Far East and Arctic Development Corporation will introduce visitors to the natural resources of the Far East macro-region, as well as unique opportunities for life, investment, and travel. This year, the exposition will be fully multimedia and focus on the new image of cities, tourism, agriculture, fisheries, mining, and forest resources. Per tradition, the pavilion will offer tastings of foods made by participants in the Far Eastern Hectare programme and will present digital services and government support mechanisms.

A number of pavilions on Far East Street will be making their debut at the exhibition this year.

The Tourism.RF Corporation’s pavilion will be designed as a three-star hotel. The House of Indigenous Peoples will showcase the culture and life of Russia’s Indigenous peoples. Numerous events will take place at this site, including the Creative Industries Forum, as well as various master classes, roundtables, and exhibitions. In addition, visitors to the pavilion will have a chance to sample the unique gastronomy of the north.

The Days of the Far East Regions will be held daily as part of the exhibition’s cultural programme. Each day will be dedicated to two regions, and a gala concert will take place on the last day of the exhibition.

In addition, for the first time, the Far East Street will feature a youth creative campus, where talented children will be able to take part in master classes and attend lectures by creative experts on themes that tie in the cultural heritage of the peoples of the Far East with modern creative approaches.
