Among the events to take place as part of the 6th Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok on 2–4 September will be the «Far East Street» exhibition. The exhibition will showcase all 11 regions of Russia’s Far East, including Khabarovsk Territory. The event is being organized by the Roscongress Foundation with the support of the Office of the Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District.

«The Eastern Economic Forum is an important tool for development in the Russian Far East. It provides an opportunity for the regions to showcase their potential to investors, tourists, economists, and others taking part in the Forum. Khabarovsk Territory is leading the way in the Far East in terms of investment growth, and visitors to Far East Street will be able to find out about the main areas of its economy. Investors can learn about what projects are under way and about how to receive support for business. As a result, they may decide to look closer at the region,» said Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev.

Acting Governor Mikhail Degtyaryov commented that it was crucial for local authorities to establish a friendly system based on partnership for interacting with investors.

«We are endeavouring in every way to capitalize on platforms such as EEF to build a dialogue with investors and to hold face-to-face discussions on the potential for cooperation. Our infrastructure for interacting with businesses has been built according to the one-stop-shop principle. A new portal for investors has been launched, enabling them to remotely apply for support on a project, as well as obtain essential advisory support. Attracting investment is also crucial in order to benefit society. With additional revenue reaching the public coffers, we will endeavour to increase social spending,» said Degtyaryov.

The region’s pavilion, entitled «The Future Today» will feature an exhibit looking like a microcircuit. Features of the region will be connected by illuminated lines matching a picture. The main exhibit will be surrounded by living walls, symbolizing the interaction between man and nature. The pavilion itself will resemble an ecopark of the future, with modern technologies integrated in the landscape.

A tech park area will showcase the region’s leading achievements to Forum participants and guests, and an app will provide information about its main features.

Inside the pavilion, visitors will be able to see the latest high-tech developments to come out of the region, and view an accompanying video presentation.

A separate area, entitled «Flagship Projects in Khabarovsk Territory» will highlight the region’s business potential, and incorporate alcoves with models illustrating major business initiatives aimed at bringing exciting ideas to life. A digital library will provide information on key investment projects in Khabarovsk Territory, and cutting-edge technology will be applied, incorporating the latest animation techniques, and 3D visualization.

Significant attention will also be given to social programmes. Visitors will be able to find out about various support measures, and hear stories about how people from various professions and groups of society have benefitted.

Khabarovsk Territory is the Far East’s leading bandy-playing region, and guests will also be able to try their hand at the sport using AR technology. With a special app, they will be able to attempt to score goals, while preventing goals being scored against them.

Far East Street will be open from 2 to 7 September. EEF 2021 participants and guests will have exclusive access to the exhibition up to 4 September. On 5 and 6 September, the exhibition will be open to the general public, with 7 September being a social day.
