Radio Monte Carlo Regatta Opened EEF 2022 Sports Programme

The Radio Monte Carlo Regatta was held near Moscow as the first event in the sports programme of the 7th Eastern Economic Forum (Vladivostok, 5–8 September). Twenty crews made up of representatives from the business, creative, tourism, sports, and other industries went under sail. The event, which combined sport, music, and a business programme, was organized by the Russian Media Group with the support of RC-Sport, the Roscongress Foundation’s sports platform.

The special features of the Far East, as well as its potential and development were the main theme of the session “Russian Media Group: Creative & Business. Emotional targeting: noble classics and daring digital”, held after the Regatta.

Georgy Bryusov, CEO of the Centre for Athletic Training of Russian National Teams, said that the Russian Far East received more than 1,000 athletes and coaches during the final stage of preparations for the Tokyo Olympics, with more than half of them training at the FEFU campus on Russky Island. “Sixteen of the 20 gold medals in Tokyo 2020 were won by athletes who trained in the Far East. It was preceded by well-coordinated efforts of the Ministry of Sport and regional heads to upgrade the infrastructure. The EEF sports programme shaped by the Roscongress Foundation helped develop the necessary organizational expertise in the region. Sport was one of the pioneers in the Far East in terms of territorial development. Now the sports federations are returning to EEF 2022 with new international tournaments. At the same time, a substantive conversation about the development of sports in the Far East in the light of the new challenges will take place in the Forum business programme and at the pavilion of the Ministry of Sport at the ‘Far East Street’ exhibition,” said Georgy Bryusov. 

Valery Fedorov, Director General of VCIOM, said that the Yakutsk branch had helped the sociological research in the Far Eastern Federal District switch to 24/7. “Why Yakutsk? Because the North-Eastern Federal University is located there, as well as many well-known IT companies. Just 10–12 years ago, our people associated the Far East with ‘degradation, ruin, exodus...’. Now it is ‘development, the future, infrastructure, nature, and beauty’,” Valery Fedorov emphasized the changes in public opinion.

Elvira Nurgalieva, First Deputy General Director of the Far East Development Corporation, spoke about the educational prospects that the Far East offers to young people, as well as the cultural and tourism potential of the region. “A flywheel economy has been launched in the Far East, tax incentives, appropriate legislation, and the opportunity to develop new businesses – more than a hundred thousand jobs have been created,” said Elvira Nurgalieva, First Deputy General Director of the Far East Development Corporation. 

The session was moderated by Dmitry Mednikov, Managing Director of the Russian Media Group. Participants in the discussion included popular singer Dmitry Malikov; Director of Development and Strategic Partnerships of The Carlton, Moscow Elena Veselova; Advisor to the Deputy Minister of Economic Development Olga Terno; and other experts. The event ended with a concert of pop stars. 

The sports and entertainment programme of the 7th Eastern Economic Forum will be held under the Vladivostok Open brand. It will include events in 10 athletic disciplines. The operator of Vladivostok Open is RC-Sport, the sports platform of the Roscongress Foundation.
