PDAS AND FREE PORT OF VLADIVOSTOK: FOCUS OF THE SECOND EASTERN ECONOMIC FORUM
25 March 2016
The main content of the second Eastern Economic Forum (EEF), to be held in Vladivostok this September, will be the real results of implementing priority development areas (PDAs) and the Free Port in Russia’s Far East, informed Deputy Prime Minister and Russian Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev.
“In my opinion, the second Eastern Economic Forum must focus on development dynamics; this is the bottom line. I do not mean general economic discussions but clear evidence that we are moving ahead and making progress in all key areas, that the number of economic projects and new undertakings continues to grow,” Mr. Trutnev said on Friday in Vladivostok at a meeting devoted to preparing for and holding the EEF.
The Deputy Prime Minister pointed out that a lot had changed in the Far East since the first EEF held in September 2015.
“New priority development territories have been created, new investment projects have been supported, Free Port of Vladivostok has launched its operations,” Mr. Trutnev said.
