The first Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) was held in 2015 at the initiative of Vladimir Putin. The Russian president is expected to attend this year’s event.
The sixth edition of the Eastern Economic Forum will take place from 2 to 4 September on the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok. The event is aimed at developing business ties and attracting national and international investors to Russia’s Far East.
On 3 September, EEF moderators and speakers will share what they have discussed at the forum. Vladimir Putin will attend an online signature ceremony of major business documents related to investments in the region. The president is expected to deliver a speech at a plenary session of the EEF, with the heads of Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Argentina, China, India, and Thailand joining in.
This year, the forum will be held in a hybrid format because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which made it impossible to hold the event last year.
