Oleg Kozhemyako

Dear friends!

Sakhalin Region is a unique region of Russia. It has abundant resource and raw materials base, significant opportunities for tourism, recreation, and most importantly, business development and investment activities.

In recent years, large-scale projects have been implemented in Sakhalin and the Kurils in agriculture, sport and tourism, transport, fuel and energy.

In 2017, Sakhalin region showed the most impressive growth in Russia following the National rating of the investment climate, having risen by 42 positions.

Successes and achievements of the region are presented at the exhibition The Far East Street. In the exposition of the Sakhalin region, we will represent the investment potential of the region with samples of products produced by Sakhalin agro-industrial companies, we will tell about the tourist routes of Sakhalin and the Kurils. Our guests will have opportunity to virtually visit Gorniy Vozdukh sports and tourist resort and feel the atmosphere of the island.

In addition, the pavilion reflects the idea of build- ing a transition from the mainland to Sakhalin. De- spite the fact that the initiative is still at the stage of elaboration, we offer visitors of the exhibition to look into the possible future and introduce themselves in the fast train “Sakhali – Crimea”.

We invite you to the exposition of the Sakhalin region at the Eastern economic forum!
