Yury Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Special Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, said during the sixth Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) that agreements worth 3.6 trillion rubles ($49.32 billion) had been signed.

 3.6 trillion rubles worth of business transactions were completed at the conference, according to statistics, TASS writes. According to him, there is still a great deal of work to be done to bring these 3.6 trillion Russian rubles into the Far Eastern economy.

The efforts in the Far East, according to Trutnev, will continue to be directed at recruiting both Russian and foreign investors.

He went on to say that the state would continue to try to continuously create new growth opportunities, thus guaranteeing that the Far East maintains its position as a test bed for management innovations related to the region’s development in the future.

“New Possibilities for the Far East in a Changing Landscape” was the main topic of the business program of the sixth Eastern Economic Forum, which took place in Vladivostok on September 2-4 in a hybrid (mixed online and in-person) format.
