Transport and logistics opportunities of Primorye to be presented at the ‘Far East Street’ exhibition during EEF

The growing role of Primorye Territory as a transport and logistics hub will be highlighted by the region’s display at the ‘Far East Street’ exhibition to be held on 10–17 September as part of the 8th Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok. The concept of the pavilion is ‘Primorye as an important link of the new route’. EEF 2023 is organized by the Roscongress Foundation. 

            “Vladivostok is the capital of the Far Eastern Federal District. And in many respects its position is determined by the investment attractiveness of Primorye Territory. Primorye is the leader in the Far Eastern Federal District in terms of the variety and number of investment projects being implemented – over 2 thousand. Investors have already invested RUB 540 billion and commissioned 370 enterprises. And our common task is to ensure that the economic development of Primorye Territory, the Far East and the whole of Russia continues. The Far East Street exhibition will allow us to learn more about how Primorye Territory is changing, how many new projects are being launched, and how attractive the region is to tourists,” said Yury Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister – Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District.

            The display consists of five thematic zones. The first one – the Tourism and Culture zone – will present information about the main attractions of Primorye. The interactive bar will be equipped with tablets with augmented reality applications. Virtual excursions can be made to the ski resort in Arsenyev, to the cultural and educational complex on Russky Island, to the museum, theatre and educational complex on the Orlinoye Gnezdo hill, to the integrated entertainment resort ‘Primorye’, to the all-season centre for sports, children’s and family recreation ‘Solnechnaya’.

            In the Sport zone, guests will be able to learn more about the region’s sports projects and facilities via an interactive screen, while a physical model of the Bolshoi Kamen Industrial Park will be installed on the wall of the ‘Industry’ zone. The Transport and Logistics zone will present the projects of Sea Port Aurora, New Port in Sukhodol Bay, Sea Port Sukhodol, Sever, Vostochno-Uralskiy Terminal, and Pacific Bulk Terminal.

            The Science and SMO zone is dedicated to scientific developments that go towards the common victory. For this purpose, demonstration exhibits of scientific developments, IT solutions, and software will be installed. The panels will display presentation materials and exhibits of the Russky Science and Technology Centre, the Pacific Oceanological Institute of the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and other science projects, as well as such projects as Russian Carbon, Progress, and the Centre for Complex Rehabilitation. The thematic zone will also include information about the Primorye Start project.

            In addition, the outdoor area of the Primorye Territory pavilion will have Primorye Arbat: a cafe, a stage, a tribune, a pavilion ‘Made in Primorye’, and displays of the Vladivostok Commercial Sea Port dedicated to the Northern Sea Route and construction of deep-water berths.

            A separate display will talk about the Vladivostok Commercial Sea Port. Two 20-foot containers will be placed on a wooden podium. The interior of the containers is made in the style of an ice room, the temperature of the room is 17–19 degrees centigrade. Inside the containers there will be multimedia equipment, a photo zone and a bar with drinks.

            “In the current conditions, when the vector of development is directed to the East, the role of Primorye Territory as Russia’s ‘gateway to Asia’ is strengthening. Despite sanctions pressure, many countries continue to be our closest allies. We will continue to develop relations with them. This means new great prospects, because it is in the countries of Asia Pacific that half of the world’s GDP is generated. Primorye is becoming the most convenient platform for the realisation of many tasks of our country. That is why this year the main idea of the exhibition is to reveal the significance of Primorye Territory as a major transport and logistics hub. Starting with external changes and ending with internal equipment, we have tried to give the pavilion an industrial accent and port character. I am sure that its visitors will be interested to see how the region will change in the next few years as it undergoes large-scale transformations,” said Governor of Primorye Territory Oleg Kozhemyako.

The ‘Far East Street’ exhibition is organized by the Roscongress Foundation with the support of the Office of the Presidential Envoy in the Far Eastern Federal District.

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