The Dates of the 9th Eastern Economic Forum Have Been Decided

On 3–6 September 2024, the 9th Eastern Economic Forum will be held in Vladivostok on the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University. The Forum has become an authoritative discussion platform for discussing the accelerated development of the Far East economy and the expansion of international cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region. The event is organized by the Roscongress Foundation.

Yury Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, expressed confidence in the successful implementation of the Forum, emphasizing that the Eastern Economic Forum has become one of the key instruments for the region's development.

"I am confident that EEF 2024 will, as is traditional, be held at a high organizational level, strengthen the position of the Russian Far East in Asia-Pacific Region’s economic relations system, and most importantly, help find answers to the posed questions and challenges. The Forum's agenda will undoubtedly include the implementation of the President of Russia's directives on the socio-economic development of the region's infrastructure," said Yury Trutnev.

"The Eastern Economic Forum is regularly praised at international, national and regional levels. On the one hand, it has become the most important political platform for discussing Russia's initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region, and in key international structures such as BRICS and SCO. On the other hand, the EEF is a business hub in the Far East, where representatives of business and academia present their most promising projects, find partners, and make deals. EEF 2023 was a record-breaking event in terms of the total value of signed agreements – RUB 3.818 billion. I am convinced that EEF 2024 will become a landmark event for the business community," said Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation, and Executive Secretary of the Organizing Committee of the Eastern Economic Forum.

The Forum's business agenda will be complemented by a rich cultural and sports programme. As in previous years, the Far East Street exhibition will be organized, where visitors will be able to learn about the region's cultural, economic and innovative potential. The Vladivostok Seasons cultural festival, which will combine the city's events calendar with special activities, is also planned.
