Students of the Muravyov-Amursky 2030 public official training programme to participate in EEF

Students of the second round of the Muravyov-Amursky 2030 public official training programme will take part in business and sports events of the 8th Eastern Economic Forum to be held in Vladivostok on 10–13 September. EEF 2023 is organized by the Roscongress Foundation.

“The issues of staffing and attracting highly qualified specialists are among the most significant challenges in the context of further development of the Far East. As part of the Muravyov-Amursky 2030 training programme, participants are engaged in developing various projects designed to make a significant contribution to the modernization of the economy, production, social sphere, and other areas. And most importantly, we are already seeing practical results: graduates of the first round of the programme are applying their knowledge and skills and are involved in various government agencies in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District,” said Alexei Chekunkov, Minister for the Development of the Russian Far East and Arctic.

A key event for students at EEF 2023 will be the business programme session entitled ‘Muravyov-Amursky 2030: New Professionals for Ambitious Objectives’.  Its participants will discuss new approaches to the implementation of projects related to public administration in the Far East, innovations in employment and mentoring, and the use of a project approach in this area. The session will include a discussion with the head of the Ministry for the Development of the Far East and Arctic, governors of the Far Eastern regions, and first round graduates who are building a career in civil service.

The students’ programme at the Forum also includes meetings with their mentors – governors of Far Eastern regions and the Rector of the Far Eastern Federal University – to discuss project activities and employment prospects.

An important element of work at the Forum will be meetings with experts to analyse the socio-economic situation in the district. They will be attended by the heads of the Ministry of Education and Science and a number of federal authorities, the Accounts Chamber and businesses implementing projects in the Far Eastern Federal District.

The educational part of the module will consist of lectures on the international agenda in the Eastern perspective (by Alexey Maslov, Director of the Institute of Asian and African Countries at Lomonosov Moscow State University), and on the history of the development of the Far East and Siberia (by Viktor Shalay, Director of the Vladimir K. Arseniev Museum of Far East History).

The students’ programme also includes a simulation game led by Mikhail Kuznetsov, Head of the Eastern State Planning Center, where they will have to practice their skills in managing the region.

In addition to that, there will be daily training sessions under the mentorship of the head of the ‘Kyokushinkai for Schools’ project, three-time world champion in Kyokushinkai karate Khaid Mantaev and participation in the race in support of the programme for the conservation of the gyrfalcon ‘We Preserve’.

Four agreements on the implementation of the Muravyov-Amursky 2030 programme are to be signed at the EEF with the Institute of Asian and African Countries at Lomonosov Moscow State University, Vitus Bering Kamchatka State University, Pacific State University, and InfraVEB (VEB Infrastructure).

In 2022, the programme’s students held meetings at the EEF with Rostislav Goldstein, Head of the Jewish Autonomous Region, Vladimir Solodov, Head of Kamchatka Territory, and Vera Shcherbina, First Vice-Governor and Chairman of the Government of Primorye Territory. Also on the sidelines of the Forum, a session with Alexei Chekunkov, Alexei Tsydenov, Head of the Republic of Buryatia, and Alexander Osipov, Head of Zabaikalye Territory was held, during which the first results of the programme implementation were summarized.

The Muravyov-Amursky 2030 programme is a one-year educational programme followed by a two-year civil service employment programme for graduates in the Far Eastern regions. Students from the first round of the programme have already moved to the Far East from other regions of the country and are involved in regional, municipal and federal authorities, where they are engaged in economic development, infrastructure, construction and production, as well as social and educational development. This year, 52 students are taking part in the programme, having been selected from 3,305 candidates in 81 regions of the Russian Federation. The programme is implemented by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East and Arctic together with the Far East and Arctic Development Corporation.

The Eastern Economic Forum will be held on 10–13 September 2023 in Vladivostok on the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University.
