“Russia has currently ensured the most comfortable conditions for attracting advanced technologies and creating new innovative industries. The special economic zones and advanced special economic zones of the Far East offer foreign investors tax preferences and a simplified administrative regime with infrastructure being modernized at the government’s expense”.
Deputy prime minister - presidential plenipotentiary envoy to the far eastern federal district
"The Eastern Economic Forum is a step forward in the development of the Far East. We are primarily inviting investors whose companies are already working in the Russian market, or are planning to do so. These companies are numerous, and their interest in the Far East is very high. We will make every effort to provide the most attractive investment climate possible, and make sure that the Russian Far East is seen by both Russian and foreign investors as a safe, reliable, and profitable territory to work in."
Minister for the development of the Russian far east
"Over three years, the Eastern Economic Forum has become an effective working tool for the development of the entire Far East. Discussions are held here about the best practices for doing business, major transactions, and investments. The third EEF will focus on the first results of new business support mechanisms: advanced special economic zones and the Free Port of Vladivostok. Its main participants are the investors who are implementing their projects in the Far East. They are the ones who are building the new economy of the region, which is intended to serve as Russia’s springboard for integration into the world’s leading economies".
