IGOR PAVLOV: THE EASTERN ECONOMIC FORUM IS FOR DEMONSTRATING WHAT HAS BEEN DONE IN THE FAR EAST
28 June 2016
The Director of the Eastern Economic Forum tells that participants in the Forum in Vladivostok will have not problems with air tickets and hotel accommodation.
Director of the Eastern Economic Forum Igor Pavlov is convinced that, in terms of significance and scale, the Far Eastern Forum will be second only to SPIEF. Roscongress is organizing the Forum from this year.
“We are doing everything to reduce any difficulties participants in the Forum might encounter. Many people will be coming, so it must be both important and attractive. Yet some potential visitors are held back by the idea of potential problems with air tickets and hotel accommodation. We already have solutions for ensuring that people can take part in the Forum conveniently and efficiently,” Igor Pavlov said at the Open Studio of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
Aeroflot, for instance, has reserved a thousand tickets from Moscow to Vladivostok for Forum participants. Last year’s hotel accommodation problems have also been taken into consideration. Even though it will be next year before new hotels are ready, about five thousand rooms are already prepared in Vladivostok for hotel participants.
“Those who took part in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum can judge the high standards of accreditation and access. We are applying all the same standards to the Forum in Vladivostok. When it was decided to hold the Eastern Economic Forum, businessmen from China, Japan and Korea virtually applauded. The fact that the Russian President will be taking part guarantees for them that the Forum will be held at the highest standard. The matters to be discussed there are important both for Russia and for our Asian partners. The Eastern Economic Forum is for demonstrating what has been done in the Far East. Over the last year, much has been achieved and we must show this. The Forum organizers are working on this,” Mr. Pavlov explained.
