Инвестиционные проекты, капсула времени и телемост с гидом: что покажет Забайкальский край на выставке «Улица Дальнего Востока»

The Transbaikal Territory will present an exposition at the ‘Far East Street’ exhibition, which will be held during the 6th Eastern Economic Forum. The theme of the exposition is ‘Transbaikalia: Strength in People’. The region’s pavilion will be divided into three zones: a welcome zone; a culture, tourism, and natural heritage zone; and an investment potential zone.

“Transbaikalia has points of economic growth. Natural resource deposits such as the Udokan copper field and Nasedkino gold ore field are being developed, and mining and metallurgical plants are being built. A grain railway terminal is under construction. Residential areas are being built in Chita. Other major economic projects are also being launched. Thanks to the region joining the Far East, Transbaikalia has received additional opportunities to develop the economy and social sector. These are the benefits of the preferential regime of the advanced special economic zones, the modernization of infrastructure using the Far Eastern ‘Single Subsidy’, a preferential mortgage at 2% per annum, and the provision of land under the ‘Far Eastern Hectare’ programme. And it’s important for us that the projects that are implemented with state support help create comfortable conditions for people, so that new opportunities emerge for those who live in the Far East and their quality of life changes,” said Yury Trutnev, Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Plenipotentiary Envoy of the Russian President in the Far Eastern Federal District. 

At the entrance to the Transbaikal Territory pavilion, Forum guests will enter the welcome zone, where they will be greeted by a hologram of the governor. There will also be a time capsule in which people can take a photo against the backdrop of the Transbaikal landscapes and sites.

In the culture, tourism, and nature zone, visitors will see exhibits that describe the most interesting places in the region as well as infographics about national parks and attractions. Guests can also attend a video tour of the region. The guides will be located in Transbaikalia and give guests a first-hand look at the region’s nature as a kind of teleconference between the Transbaikal Territory and Vladivostok.

“Transbaikalia is a large and hospitable land, whose incredible beauty must be shown in a brighter way and more often. At the EEF site, we want to attract the attention of not only investors and potential partners, but also everyone who is ready for the amazing discoveries of our natural, cultural, historical, and gastronomic riches,” Transbaikal Territory Governor Alexander Osipov said.

An exhibit called Kartoteka will be set up in the investment potential zone. It will present the anchor advantages of the region: a rich mineral resource base, an advantageous geographical position, and ecologically clean unoccupied lands.

Visitors will be able to view presentations of investment projects that are being implemented in the region. Major companies in the region such as Norilsk Nickel, Komsomolets, and others will have booths in the zone. There will also be an exhibition of samples of minerals and products to deeply immerse people in the industry of Transbaikalia.

The ‘Far East Street’ exhibition will run on 2–7 September. It will be open to EEF 2021 participants and guests until 4 September and residents of Vladivostok on 5–6 September. A social day will be organized on 7 September.

The EEF 2021 will be held in compliance with all the required safety measures and recommendations of the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing and the World Health Organization to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The exhibition is being organized by the Roscongress Foundation with the support of the Office of the Plenipotentiary Envoy of the Russian President in the Far Eastern Federal District.
