We have already put certain efforts in these areas. Schools and kindergartens, hospitals and municipal clinics are being built and repaired through the single Far Eastern subsidy. The Far Eastern mortgage is available at a lower rate. Local residents can apply for the Far Eastern hectare programme. Buryatia is implementing measures to develop its economy. The Republic has two advanced development zones — Buryatia and Selenginsk. Tourism support is also important. Lake Baikal is a unique natural treasure not only for Buryatia, but for Russia and the whole world as well. Lake Baikal is one of a kind. We need to do our absolute best to ensure people can enjoy it without damaging the environment. Participants and guests of the Eastern Economic Forum will get to learn more about the life and development of Buryatia,» said Yury Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District.

Split into four areas — each designating a season, the pavilion will focus on the region’s investment and tourism potential and its development outlook.
