The Far East and Arctic Development Corporation, with the support of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East and the Arctic, is holding an open selection among young entrepreneurs, managers, and opinion leaders in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District on 26 August 2021.

The selection aims to assemble a youth delegation that will participate in the 6th Eastern Economic Forum. This year, the event will be held in a hybrid format on 24 September in Vladivostok in compliance with all the requirements of the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing. The venue is the campus of Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU).

Young entrepreneurs, managers, opinion leaders, and representatives of creative industries, as well as government and non-profit organizations that contribute to the development of the entrepreneurial and social environment are invited to participate in the selection.

All the participants in the selection will be invited to the youth community of the Far East and Arctic Development Corporation. The ones that pass the selection will receive accreditation for the youth programme of the 6th Eastern Economic Forum and assistance in organizing their trip to Vladivostok.

Each year, the Forum includes events that involve young people who are interested in the development of the Far Eastern Federal District and are willing to participate in coming up with solutions that aim to improve the quality of life in their region.
