The Power of Territory: Spatial Data as a Key to Development


The Far Eastern Federal District occupies 41% of the total area of Russia and unites regions with unique nature and some of the largest reserves of resources. The Far East Development Programme is a priority on a national scale. Developing the spatial, resource, urban planning, and tourism potential of the Far East requires managerial decisions based on complete and accurate spatial data. A single digital platform called the National Spatial Data System (NSDS) is being created to implement the socioeconomic development initiatives that have been set for the period until 2030. A pilot project to create the single digital platform is being successfully implemented in 20 regions of Russia, including the regions of the Far East, namely the Republic of Buryatia, Primorsky Territory, Khabarovsk Territory, and the Amur and Sakhalin Regions. Creating this resource boosts the efficiency of land use, allows for a more comprehensive approach to issues such as territorial planning, spatial development, and the design and construction of real estate, and also contributes to Russia’s import substitution strategy. How can users be provided with access to open and up-to-date spatial data, while also increasing the capitalization of the country? What digital services do people and businesses need for land and real estate? How can we attract investors to regions that are far from the centre of the country and hard-to-reach territories? What opportunities will the NSDS create for residents of and investors in the Far East?

Open Dialogue in Medicine: Personnel, Technologies, and Opportunities in the New World


Today, Russia is making a significant contribution to the intensification of international integration that aims to resolve key universal issues: health care and medical development. During the pandemic, Russian scientists created the world's first vaccine – Sputnik V – which was successfully used far beyond the country's borders. Russia's participation in global cooperation is manifested in the export of medical services, exchange of qualified personnel, as well as joint scientific and educational initiatives. Cooperation in the field of medical technologies is aimed at developing innovative projects that ensure the fastest transition to personalized medicine, high-tech health care, and the use of advanced healthcare methods. The most important thing in the meantime is to create horizontal links to improve the efficiency of all processes, including those in the Asia-Pacific region. What opportunities exist today for mutually beneficial cooperation in healthcare and the exchange of medical technology and personnel? What trends in the development of medical technologies in the Asia-Pacific region should the macro-region rely on? To what extent do the existing institutions of global healthcare cover the needs for international integration in the field of health care?

Drug Security: Strategic Course of Social Policy in the Far East. Challenges and Opportunities


Drug security is a key priority of the national social agenda. In the face of challenges, the issues such as preserving the availability of medicines; the financial sustainability and technological sovereignty of the pharmaceutical industry; and the implementation of state guarantees on drug provision require prompt elaboration and careful monitoring. The main goal is to ensure the wide availability of medication, and to guarantee that citizens have access to the most effective modern treatments, especially in remote areas of the country. Despite the sanctions, the regions of the Far East should not experience a shortage of medicines. This notion provides a powerful incentive for the development of the pharmaceutical industry, but it is limited by a number of factors. Those include underdeveloped infrastructure, a small market capacity, and the remoteness of the region from the larger domestic markets and major raw material producers, which makes the inflow of investment difficult. Nevertheless, the FEFD has wide potential for development. What strategic decisions, both at the state and macro-regional levels, can ensure the wide availability of medicines? What are the prospects for opening new pharmaceutical companies and localizing production in the macro-region? What industries can we cooperate with in order to develop new technologies? How to create conditions for economic development and increase the investment attractiveness of the industry in the new realities?

Sociocultural Development of Russia’s Regions


When choosing priority areas for development, Russia’s regions come up with strategies to create a comfortable living environment for people and preserve the high potential of their local culture. Today, creative industries are regarded as tools that can fundamentally change the nature of a local economy by ensuring the diversification and high added value of local products, creating conditions for the self-realization of the population, attracting new human resources, improving infrastructure, and reviving cities, while supporting the principles of sustainable development. Programmes to develop the creative sector in the regions include support for local entrepreneurship, the creation of infrastructure for the enlightenment, education, and self-realization of young talent, and the integration of a local identity into the production of competitive products. The creative sector can become a driving force that will enable the Russian regions to succeed in the race for ideas. What are the main objectives and priorities of the state policy in the development of creative industries and creative entrepreneurship? How can we find a balance between the identity of the creative sector and government regulation? How should a region identify the priority focuses of the creative economy? How can creative industry tools boost regional economies? What are some examples of cultural initiatives that have become a driver for a region’s development?

The Cities Where Russia Begins

In partnership with VEB.RF

How can Far Eastern cities win the competition for human capital by becoming modern, comfortable and attractive destinations for people to live and pursue self-development? Simply solving infrastructural problems in housing and utilities, transport, construction and other areas is not enough to achieve this. Renovations, even major ones, are not going to turn Far Eastern cities into places where people want to live, work, realize their creative potential and raise children. Every city must discover its own image of the future, positioning itself clearly and attractively in the global competition for people. Cities must answer the question of what key value they bring to residents. These answers could be provided by a masterplan, which offers a tool for the integrated development of cities in the long term. The business show will see city officials, public figures, architects and urbanists discuss masterplans for Vladivostok, Khabarovsk and Chita in an interactive format, both on stage and via video links. What shared problems do Far Eastern cities face and is there a common solution to them? Where can the areas of growth and development be found? How do the cities of the Far East see themselves in the future and what needs to be done to bring this future closer? Why do cities need masterplans to achieve this?

Higher Education in the East: A New Quality of Teaching


The quality of education in the Far East remains a factor in the migration outflow: the proportion of young people who leave to study at universities outside the Far Eastern Federal District is on the rise. The region’s educational and intellectual capital is the cornerstone for the development of a successful economy. Developing education and science in the Far East is crucial today due to the region’s unique natural and climatic conditions that are regularly studied, joint educational programmes with Asia-Pacific universities, as well as the need for innovations and specialists in the new economy of the Far East. What needs to be done to keep young people in the region? How can we improve the quality of education? How should we work with talented young people and ensure the productivity of the ones who might be lagging behind?

Green Energy in the Far East. Supplying Energy to Remote and Isolated Areas of the Region


Historically, the development of the energy sector in the Far East was challenging due to the significant distances between settlements, geography and climate. Today, part of the macroregion works within the UES of Russia, while another part is made up of non-price market zones, isolated energy systems, and zones of decentralized energy supply. Despite their differences, they have a set of similar problems, among which the key ones are high electricity and heat production costs, the use of non-environmental fuels, and complicated logistics. At the same time, every consumer must be guaranteed a reliable and high-quality energy supply. Renewable energy can be one solution to this problem, since the Far East has considerable potential in this area, although the opportunities and conditions for its development vary from region to region. Which Far Eastern region is the greenest? Which region is the most open to renewable energy sources (RES)? Which regions have the RES potential to provide new opportunities for changing the fuel and energy balance? How can investors be attracted to RES generation projects in the Far East?

Training of Personnel with Specialized Secondary Education


The rapid development of the Far East has spurred intensive demand for human resources. The economy has a shortage of skilled workers. Blue-collar jobs are increasingly becoming a conscious choice of the younger generation and a kind of guarantor for a successful start to their career. The federal project ‘Professionality’ will help to build a new, industry-specific model of personnel training that is synchronized with the demands of the Far Eastern labour market, ensure graduates can find jobs, and, as a result, provide a fresh impetus to import substitution. How can we effectively correct the imbalance between the system of secondary vocational education and the demands of employers? How can we get employers involved in active and meaningful cooperation with educational organizations?

Rental Housing – Development Opportunities

In partnership with DOM.RF

The development of the Far East not only requires investment, but also an influx of talented specialists from other regions of Russia. This cannot be accomplished without a modern and civilized rental market: corporate rentals for company employees, commercial rentals for those who want and are ready to rent housing on market terms, social rentals for the low-income bracket, student rentals for young people at university. Thanks to mass privatization, almost 90% of Russian families live in their own housing, while the rest rent. The rental market in Russia is mostly grey: citizens rent apartments from individuals, tenants’ rights are not protected by contracts, and the quality of the actual apartments also leaves much to be desired. The creation of a transparent rental market that meets the needs of the various groups of the population, with guarantees for everyone involved, is a key component of the housing policy both in Russia as a whole and in the Far Eastern Federal District in particular. What is needed to achieve this? What role does the government and its institutions play in developing such a market? What is needed to get business interested in building rental housing?

Five Years of the Far Eastern Hectare: Entering the Agglomeration Phase


The Far Eastern Hectare programme has been an effective tool for active people and has provided them with an opportunity to create their own businesses in their native land. The five-year grace period has concluded for the first contracts for the free use of land plots. The next and key stage is for citizens to register ownership of their land or sign a long-term lease. The system whereby land plots are provided to citizens for free within a month with minimal administrative costs helps to eliminate administrative barriers and get people actively involved in the development of the region. Creating urban agglomerations is the next stage in the programme’s implementation. To date, priority agglomerations have been identified in the regions. Transport and energy infrastructure has already been built for more than 10 of them. People own land, but what’s next? What are the prospects for the programme’s development? What role do agglomerations play in the spatial development of territories? How should housing development be organized on the hectares? What other development prospects do suburban areas have?

Healthcare: Accessibility, Quality, Results


The peculiarities of the Far East, such as its large territory, low population density, extreme climatic conditions, high level of population concentrated in capital cities, remoteness of settlements, and limited transport accessibility, require special differentiated approaches. Problems such as the accessibility of primary healthcare, preventive measures, and consultative and diagnostic assistance in small settlements are particularly acute. This problem cannot be solved by simply building up medical infrastructure since the creation of a full-cycle regional healthcare system requires impressive resources (financial and human resources, expertise, and patient flows). Given that it would be inadvisable to create specialized medical organizations in each individual region due to the limited nature of all types of resources, there is a unique opportunity to unify such resources at the level of interregional medical centres in regions with a low population. This approach would make it possible to achieve the effect of improving the quality of specialized medical care and save money. How can the limited resources of the regional healthcare system be effectively utilized? How can we build an effective system of territorial planning in healthcare taking into account the territorial peculiarities of the Far East? What is the best way to attract human resources to regional medicine? What should the focuses be for improving the qualifications of specialists and the effectiveness of the HR policy in the healthcare system of the Far East?

Human Development in the Far East: The Key Asset Is People


Developing human capital is one of the main prerequisites for ensuring the socioeconomic development of the Far East. It is crucial to make an impact on the quantity and quality of human capital in the territory. Managing demographic and migration processes as well as risks creates conditions for the rapid socioeconomic development of the Far East. The labour market is experiencing new challenges due to the influence of internal and external factors and is imposing additional demands for the employment of the population, including the development of entrepreneurial skills. How can we preserve and attract human capital to the region? What are the demographic trends in the Far East region, and what impact are they having on ensuring stabilization in the population and creating conditions for growth? How can we ensure employment for young professionals immediately after graduation and keep them in the region? How can we expand the expertise of residents of the Far East? How should the government promptly respond to changes on and the transformation of the labour market? Are there any best practices for improving the demographic situation and attracting managerial personnel to the Far East and the Arctic?

Age and Image as Part of Social Attitude Towards Culture and Traditions


What is age? Does it depend on appearance, social status, or life accomplishments? According to the WHO, in 1955 the average life expectancy in the world was only 48 years. In 1995, the number rose to 65. By 2030, the average life expectancy in Russia should be 78 years. Today, the concept of "age" has become a phantom. On one side are 20-year-old CEOs of large companies and 15-year-old Influencers, while on the other side are people mastering new professions at 60. Medicine, bioprosthetics, cosmetology and plastic surgery are rapidly developing. The popularity of healthy lifestyle is gaining momentum. The key events that define social age are now distributed throughout a person’s life in a completely different way compared to 20 years ago. However, there are still age stereotypes we can hardly get rid of as they have become entrenched in our consciousness. How much has the age "census" changed? Is it because we have learned to look good, and therefore the time has come to feel good about ourselves accordingly? Is this the reason that more and more attention is being paid to health in general and preventive medicine in particular? How are big companies (including cosmetic companies) encouraging this, what pitfalls are there in this regard? Is it possible to fight the latter on the state level? What is the threat of the mass fad for body positivity from the point of view of clinical medicine?

Evolution of Influencers: Generation Next


The audience of popular bloggers is growing by the day. The most successful members within the blogging community are called the influencers. They quickly scale their success and turn into ‘human brands’. The opinion leaders launch entire ‘content factories’ and compete with traditional media. They already significantly influence consumer behavior. Evidently, beliefs, values, and political views are next. However, in 2022 business bets on ‘microinfluencers’, niche bloggers with a more loyal and involved audience compared to big celebrities. Who is going to dominate in this race? Who is going to taking business to the top?

The Far East: How Can Socially Conscious Business, Non-Profit Organizations, and Media Partner to Improve the Quality of Life?


The increasing amount of attention both the state and big business pay to social, cultural, and charitable projects is reflected in the increase in funding, geographic expansion, and the quality of assistance they provide. At the same time, leading non-profit organizations are often still perceived by the general public as something of a folly, while participation in their projects has not yet become an important element of everyday life. A partnership between socially conscious businesses, non-profit organizations, and media holdings can ensure a new level of quality of life in the regions where they operate and have a significant impact on increasing public trust in the sector. Accordingly, their collaboration can bring more people to take part in various programmes related to improving the quality of life in the Far East. How do businesses and the media help non-profits become efficient? How do non-profits help businesses and the media achieve greater results in their business? What should be done to make participation in social projects the norm for all players in each territory? How to increase the level of public trust in charities and other non-profit organizations? What can the media and business do for this? How can we make the practice of systematic interaction between business, media and non-profits sustainable?

Indigenous Lives: Preserving Traditions, Developing the Economy and Improving the Standard of Living


The Russian government has historically been responsible for the Indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia, and the Far East and ensures the preservation of their original habitat, traditional way of life, and spiritual heritage. Comprehensive measures are being taken for their ethno-cultural development and social support, as well as to strengthen the systems of essential services for the most vulnerable groups of such peoples. As a result, the Indigenous peoples of Russia, unlike many regions of the world, have retained their population numbers, settlement systems, self-government, lifestyle, culture, languages, and ties to their lands. However, due to globalization, economic growth, and the resulting transformation of the system of social relations, Indigenous peoples now face new challenges and threats, namely the need to expand their own economic potential in order to strengthen their autonomous systems of livelihood. Solving this problem requires modernizing the conditions for the traditional types of economic activities of Indigenous peoples, supporting their entrepreneurial initiatives in these areas, as well as including them in the development of the creative economy. Creative industries, handicrafts, tourism, ethnic branding, and territorial marketing are increasingly linked to the use of the traditional knowledge, spiritual heritage, and exclusive traditional crafts of Indigenous peoples, which have export potential and are in high demand on domestic markets. What significance do the traditional economic activities of Indigenous peoples hold for the socioeconomic development of the remote northern and eastern regions of Russia? What improvements can be made to government support measures for the traditional economic activities of the Indigenous peoples living in the Russian North, Siberia, and the Far East? What are some of the current problems that need to be addressed to preserve and develop reindeer herding, not only as an ethnically key component of the subsistence economy? How can socially responsible investment (ESG) by industrial companies and subsoil users aim to maintain environmental standards, preserve the habitat and traditional economic activities of Indigenous peoples, and ensure industrial cooperation with them?

Eastern Knowledge: Asian Vector of Education


The active expansion of Russia’s collaboration with Asian countries has led to a rapid increase in demand for people who are able to work effectively with the countries of the East, create high-quality analytics and expertise, know the national traditions of the region, and understand political risks. Training specialists based solely on studying the oriental language with a focus on self-reproduction no longer meets Russia’s national interests and needs, while the lack of professionalism in expert assessments can lead to improper actions in the future. The education system faces the challenge of training a new generation of personnel who are capable of working with the countries of Asia and Africa in various fields: from economics and entrepreneurship to law and mass media, from cultural and religious traditions to the study of modern elites and the environmental agenda, and from migration processes to the scientific and technical development of Asia. This, in turn, requires a comprehensive training programme for Orientalist scholars as well as specialists on Asia and Africa, which encompasses all levels of education: secondary, higher, and postgraduate, including the retraining of personnel. This also affects the regional agenda, for example, the training of new personnel for Russian regions that are actively engaged in economic cooperation, both in bilateral and multilateral formats. What modern skills should graduates of Oriental studies programmes have, and what new programmes should be incorporated into training? How can we develop and implement a comprehensive training programme for Russian-oriented personnel to work with the countries of Asia and Africa? What regions should resource training centres be created in, and how should they be provided with human resources? How can the practical nature of on-the-job training be combined with the academic traditions of Russian oriental studies?
