Dear participants and guests of the 6th Eastern Economic Forum,

This year, Vladivostok has once again become a meeting place for representatives of Russian and international businesses, authorities, and experts from a variety of industries in order to encourage an inflow of investments in various projects of the Russian Far East and Kamchatka in particular, and thus accelerate economic development.

Each Forum brings in new partners for the Far Eastern Federal District for the construction of roads, buildings, social facilities, infrastructure, and new businesses. The agreements achieved at the Forum ensure the launch of new products, the creation of new jobs, an increase of tax revenues, and the development of certain industries.

Thousands of investment projects have been launched and realized over the years of the Eastern Economic Forum, and one of the largest is about to be implemented in Kamchatka. This is the Three Volcanoes Park which will assure a breakthrough expansion of the region’s tourism economy.

The Far Eastern Forum today is not only a major investment event attended by business leaders from around the world, but it is also a platform uniting people committed to the development of the Far Eastern territories.

Our mission has always been and continues to be the development of specific regions, as well as the entire Far East. I wish all my colleagues, participants and guests of the Eastern Economic Forum fruitful work and achievement of their goals.

About the pavilion

The key mission of Kamchatka's Pavilion is to demonstrate the uniqueness of this place both as a natural reserve, to preserve its fragile beauty (our common task), and as a region of unparalleled economic opportunities – the growth drivers of the Russian Far East.

The pavilion is a stylized volcano – the signature symbol of the peninsula, with the walls featuring special diode lighting for the effect of lava bubbling and flowing down the slopes at night.

The total area of our exhibition is 440 m2.

It is located both inside the pavilion and in the open air, divided into themed sectors.
