At the plenary session of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) on 3 September 2016, the Russian President stated that Russias Far Eastern regions should be taken as a case study of best practice in the work of business support institutions. The session will include a presentation of best practices used in the Business Agent project, and an overview of the results of the mystery shopper operation run by the non-profit organization Leaders Club, aimed at assessing the quality of the efforts undertaken by institutions in the Russian Far East to attract investment and support business, and evaluating existing development zones. The discussion will focus on problems encountered by Russian and foreign investors in Russias Far Eastern regions. Are the Far Eastern regions ready to welcome investors? What are the most effective tools for attracting investors to the Russian Far East?
