Participants will discuss issues related to human capital, culture, the health of the nation, regional development, and social control during workshops and roundtables over the course of two days.

Key issues to be discussed include national projects and breakthrough solutions for socio-economic development, ways to support small business in Buryatia, and the implementation of projects within advanced special economic zones.
