Acting head of Sakha Republic (Yakutia)

Aisen Nikolaev

Dear friends!

The 4th Eastern Economic Forum opens a whole range of new opportunities for the Sakha Republic (Yakutia): trade, cultural, tourist, investment. It offers us broad prospects for integration into the economic space not only of the Russian Far East, but of the entire Asia-Pacific region.

Pavilion of Yakutia on the Street of the Far East Exhibition, named Treasury of Eternal Permafrost, will be presented to guests by diamonds, frost, northern lights and the “revived” baby mammoth thanks to digital technologies. Everyone will be able to walk around Yakutsk and see how the largest city on the permafrost starts to grow, slide down the ice hill and look at the great river Lena in augmented reality. Many know about our wealth - diamonds and gold, but our main wealth is Yakut nature itself. We have a very beautiful and truly unique republic, a large part of which remains terra incognita.

Dear friends, I sincerely hope that by visiting our pavilion, you will want to come to Yakutia and see everything with your own eyes. See you!
