Primorsky Region to Present Its Technological Potential at ‘Far East Street’

На «Улице Дальнего Востока» Приморский край представит технологический потенциал

Primorsky Region will be one of the participants in the large-scale ‘Far East Street’ exhibition, which opens on 5 September in Vladivostok. The region, which annually hosts the Eastern Economic Forum, has devoted its presentation to import substitution policies and technological developments.

The concept of the Primorsky Region pavilion is based on the world ocean, which, like region itself, connects people and countries. The architectural and design solution of the pavilion is a spiralling clam shell, a symbol of this Far Eastern region’s growth and development.

“Primorsky Region is the link in the world ocean of industrial, economic and innovative ties. The Region’s display includes projects that target its logistical development, organization of local industries, supporting entrepreneurship, development of domestic tourism and fulfilment of local residents’ creative potential,” noted of Governor of Primorsky Region Oleg Kozhemyako. 

Visitors will be presented with an interactive transport and logistics map of Primorsky Region. It will focus on the region’s role in the global transport and logistics system, namely the potential of the Northern Sea Route, location of railways, key seaports, as well as some key investment projects in the transport industry. In addition, ready-made investment proposals will be presented, especially those relevant to the redevelopment of logistics chains: a grain terminal in Sukhodol Bay, transport and logistics centres near automobile border crossing points.

The territorial development zone will accommodate plans to develop Vladivostok agglomeration, investment projects on Russky Island, and the potential of the Bolshoi Kamen industrial park. An industrial park is creating a cluster to produce building materials for the entire Far East. The site has already been selected by TechnoNICOL to house plants producing bitumen insulation materials and extruded polystyrene foam.

Promising start-ups in the field of new technologies will be presented to the guests of the exhibition: technology for lifting sunken ships, a flying drone for wind energy, an assembly platform, production of a rubber-bitumen modifier that significantly reduces the cost of asphalt production, and production of aqua containers for transportation of live fish and any hydrobionts. Most of the projects are winners of the regional Primorsky Start competition held by Russky Technopark.

The pavilion features new lightweight carbon-based wheelchairs for children with limited mobility, produced in a unique seaside factory. A robot named Adam, designed to teach children about robotics and basic programming, will greet visitors at the entrance to the pavilion.

The Solaster teleoperated unmanned underwater vehicle will be demonstrated outdoors in a large aquarium with a capacity of 6 tonnes, set up on a platform behind the pavilion. A new model of the unmanned aerial vehicle of the Progress plant will be displayed next to it. The vehicle is versatile and as relevant as possible in the current situation.

The display will will also feature a tourism zone with two of the most ambitious and striking tourism projects in Primorye. They provide Russian citizens with the opportunity to vacation at a high-quality level in the Russian Far East: the Belaya Gora ski resort project in Arseniev and the Primorye integrated entertainment resort project, which will combine concert and exhibition, children’s and shopping centres, the Sinaya Sopka ski slope, and golf parks.

In the bar areas of Primorsky Region’s display, guests will be offered drinks and appetizers from local producers and farmers. The summer gazebo will sell products and souvenirs from local artisans. A programme by the Primorsky Region Philharmonic Society and contemporary musicians is planned.

Far East Street will be open on the waterfront of Ajax Bay at the campus of Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) for guests and participants of the 7th Eastern Economic Forum from 5 to 8 September. After the end of the Forum, the exhibition will go on until 11 September. Entry for residents of Vladivostok and other cities is free.

The event is organized by the Roscongress Foundation. Registration for media representatives at the EEF 2022 is open on the official website.
