Eastern Economic Forum Awaits Delegations From 51 Countries in Russia

Representatives from 51 countries have confirmed their participation in the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) that will take place in Vladivostok, Russia, on September 2, 2021, RT reports. According to the Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, Yuri Trutnev, last time the event gathered a record number of international participants (65 countries).  

Trutnev added that guests were requested to come alone due to the current social-distancing situation related to the coronavirus pandemic. He noted that this will reduce the participant’s number in half, from 8,000 two years ago to 4,000 now. The Deputy Prime Minister expressed hope that the forum will be successful, since “the principal participants, such as heads of companies, government bodies, and countries of the Asia-Pacific region will attend the event”. It is specified that in 2021 the Forum venue will host:
