Economic Development of the Russian Far East

Following the results of the 4th Eastern Economic Forum, Vladimir Putin confirmed his earlier orders.

Also, dates for Eastern Economic Forum 2019 are set now. The 5th Eastern Economic Forum will be held on September 4–6, 2019 on the Far Eastern Federal University campus in Vladivostok.

Following a meeting of the Presidium of the State Council held on September 10 in Vladivostok, President Vladimir Putin ordered cargo-and-passenger vessels to be built for the Far East. The government of the Russian Federation should ensure that ships are built in order to set up regular services between the Kamchatka Peninsula, the ports of Sakhalin, the Magadan Region, Primorsky Krai, and the Kuril Islands.

148 new companies have been opened in the Far East. Implementation of these projects has created more than 12,500 new jobs. Total investment was RUB 159 billion. In all, 1,375 investment projects with a total investment of RUB 3.8 trillion have been announced for implementation in the Advanced Special Economic Zones and the Vladivostok Free Port.
