Опубликован журнал V Восточного экономического форума

The Roscongress Foundation has published the 5th Eastern Economic Forum magazine. It includes an interview with the Minister for the Development of the Russian Far East and Arctic Alexander Kozlov and other content related to the event agenda, with the focus on the implementation of national projects in the Far Eastern Federal District and its integration into the economy of the Asia-Pacific region. Readers can learn all about landmark transport and social infrastructure projects, and plans for the development of innovation and tourism clusters.

«The Forum magazine provides its readers an excellent opportunity to immerse themselves in the event agenda in advance and learn more about the Russian Far East, its traditions, and culture and tourist attractions,» said Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the Russian President and Executive Secretary of the Eastern Economic Forum Organizing Committee.

The magazine is published in Russian and English and is available in the Forum venues, the official Forum cars, and on Aeroflot’s Moscow—Vladivostok—Moscow route. The online version is available on the website (Magazine section) and the ROSCONGRESS.ORG Information and Analytical System.

The Business section introduces the reader to the Business Priority project, which has been successful in helping high-tech startups find investors, and the Russian Falcon Centre, which will open in Kamchatka with the support of the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and the Government of the UAE. The Roscongress Foundation is involved in both projects.

Social issues and medicine are covered in depth by the magazine in articles prepared jointly with scientists from the Innosocium LAB and the ‘Healthy Life’ Area. Given the vast distances of the Far East, a completely different approach to diagnosis and treatment is required. Veronika Skvortsova, Minister of Health of the Russian Federation, talks about the growing role of innovative technologies in medicine.

India and Japan are important economic partners for Russia in the Asia-Pacific region and special guests of the EEF. The Forum will be attended by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe. Readers of the magazine will be able to take a fascinating journey to the Land of the Rising Sun and size up the prospects for business cooperation between Russia and India.

The entertainment section of the magazine includes an article about the history of the Chinese Eastern Railway, the successors of the famous traveler Nicholas Miklouho-Maclay, and the Far Eastern delicacies of red caviar and local medicinal herbs. The important cultural events of the Forum are preceded by an interview with Grigory Leps (the singer will speak at the Gala Reception on behalf of the Forum Organizing Committee), and a story about Sandro Botticelli’s famous work of art Madonna and Child from the Uffizi Gallery collection, which will be showcased at EEF with the support of Sberbank.

The magazine also contains useful information for Forum participants: business, cultural and sports events, a guide to the Forum venue, important contact information and addresses.
