Head of the Federal Agency for Tourism

Oleg Safonov

Dear friends!

Russia’s far eastern regions are truly unique in terms of tourism. Natural, ethnic and cultural diversity combine there with a rich historical heritage and unique local cuisine alongside valuable medicinal and recreational resources.

The location of the far eastern federal subjects predetermined their potential as a possible tourist destination. First of all, they are a good destination for tourists from the Asia-Pacific region. The Far East has every opportunity to make a significant contribution to carrying out President Vladimir Putin’s instruction to increase exports of tourist services.

Russia’s Far East is a pioneer in the implementation of the digital visa project. Digital visas are a very important tool which meets the demands of the digital economy. Further adoption of electronic visas is going to help realise the full potential of the Far East.

I am sure that the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District will present at the Fourth Eastern Economic Forum and the Far East Street exhibition being held there at an even higher level than in previous years, thus ensuring excellent results.

I wish the participants and organisers of the forum and the exhibition success in all their work and in achieving the goals they have set for themselves. I hope that everyone will have a good and useful time together!
