Minister of Sport of the Russian Federation

Pavel Kolobkov

On behalf of the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation and on my own behalf, I am pleased to welcome participants, organisers and visitors to the 4th Eastern Economic Forum and the Far East Street Exhibition!

The Russian Far East is fast becoming the forward outpost of the domestic economy and domestic industry, as well as a paragon of effective international cooperation with countries of the Asia Pacific Region. Today, multiple investment projects aimed at improving the standard of living in the Far East are being successfully tested. In addition, great attention is being paid to the development of sport infrastructure, the organisation of top-level international competitions and the implementation of programmes for lovers of active recreation.

Traditionally, the Forum has helped us peer into the future of the Russian Far East, attract new partners for investment projects and forge ties for interregional and international cooperation.

I am certain that interesting ideas and sport-related projects will be presented at this Eastern Economic Forum, which will help more people around the world adopt an active lifestyle.

I hope that all of you have fruitful conversations, make new contacts and successfully attain your goals!
