    Thousands of business people and major investors from Russia and the Asia-Pacific region will be taking part in the Eastern Economic Forum to be held in Russia’s Far Eastern city of Vladivostok from September 3-5.

    The EEF was established in May 2015 with the goal of speeding up the economic development of the Russian Far East and expanding mutually-rewarding cooperation in Asia and the Pacific.

    Even though the Eastern Economic Forum is a relatively new phenomenon in Russia’s economic life, it has already generated a great deal of interest from local and foreign businessmen.

    According to Alexander Galushka, Minister of Development of the Russian Far East, the EEF-2015 will bring together around 4,000 entrepreneurs and investors from 24 countries, including Russia.

    The EEF will be held on September 3-5 in the Russian city of Vladivostok as a platform for dialogue between international investors, the Russian government and countries of the Asia-Pacific Region.

    Over 200 investment projects valued at over 4.7 trillion rubles ($70.4 billion) will be presented at the forum.
