Sakhalin Region to Present Itself as an Ecopolis in the Far East Street

Sakhalin Oblast will take part in the Far East Street exhibition, set to open in the capital of Primorye on 5 September. The only island region in the country will present its main investment and social projects, the results of the 75-year-long development, and the pilot climate programme which aims to achieve carbon neutrality.

The exposition of the Sakhalin Region will combine several thematic zones. It will feature concepts like ‘Ecopolis: Man, Technology and Nature’ and ‘75th Anniversary of the Sakhalin Region: History of Sakhalin Island Development’. The region was formed as an independent entity in 1947, in recognition of its great political and economic importance for the country.

Visitors to the exhibition will learn how the region has developed over the past 75 years and what results it has been able to achieve in terms of socio-economic development. Contemporary and retro photos will help guests to get acquainted with the past and present of the region.

New vision of the Far Eastern regional development will be presented on the example of the South Sakhalin agglomeration. The pavilion of the Sakhalin Region will tell about the future of the region’s capital and its suburbs.

Another initiative to be demonstrated by the region is the ‘Care. Protect. Respect.’ project. A new approach in the provision of state and municipal services is intended to make the existing system accessible and clear to all residents. The programme, launched on the behest of the Sakhalin Region’s Governor Valery Limarenko, will involve volunteers who will receive feedback from Sakhalin and Kuril residents. People, not papers or statistics, will help make the process of rendering state services more flexible. The project will cover various spheres from health care and social protection, to education, housing and utilities, road maintenance, etc.

The Sakhalin Region will showcase priority investment projects, including development programs for the Kuril Islands. Thanks to access to the investment portal (investinsakhalin.ru), visitors will be able to download project presentations using QR codes.

Visitors will also learn about the Sakhalin Region climate programme. The region is the first in the country to embark on an experiment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2026. «Green» energy is becoming especially relevant here.

The exposition will also introduce everyone to the culture of the indigenous peoples of Sakhalin Region. There will be tastings of sweets, sirups and other local produce. Thematic photo areas will open for visitors. There will be workshops by representatives of indigenous minorities, quizzes, drawings, concerts.

The volume of printed materials will be significantly reduced in order to preserve nature. Visitors to Sakhalin pavilions will be offered to download the necessary information using QR codes.

«The island region is one of the best places to do business in Russia. Comfortable conditions have been created here for the fulfilment of entrepreneurial initiatives. In addition to the territories of advanced development and the Free Port of Vladivostok regime, this year the Kuril Islands introduced a special tax regime, which opens up new opportunities for the implementation of investment projects. The Sakhalin Region’s attractiveness for investment is also confirmed by its high position in Russia’s investment rating. According to the results of 2021, the region is in fifth place. The areas of oil and gas services, logistics, fish processing and tourism are promising. The priority is to improve the quality of life and create a comfortable environment on the islands. Welcome to the exposition of Sakhalin Region!» says Valery Limarenko, Governor of Sakhalin Region.

The ’Far East Street’ will be available to guests and participants of the Eastern Economic Forum on 5–8 September. It is located on the Ajax Bay embankment on the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University. After the end of the Forum, Vladivostok residents and visitors will enjoy free access to the exhibition until 11 September. It is organized by the Roscongress Foundation.

All real-time news on the preparation for EEF 2022 is available on the official Forum social network accounts.
