Vietnam is an active member of the Eastern Economic Forum and its engagement will contribute to the success of the upcoming 6th edition, said Grigory Trofimchuk, Chairman of the Council of Experts of the Eurasian Research Fund.

The expert told the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) at threshold of the event slated for September 2 – 4 that the forum, an initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin, aims to promote economic relations between all countries wishing to exploit the great potential of the Russian Far East.

He said Vietnam has for years put forth initiatives and suggestions in contribution to the forum's common activities in order to facilitate the development of the region.

According to Trofimchuk, over the past decade, Vietnam has contributed to setting the paces and working styles of many international organisations and promoted cooperation on a global scale.

He noted it should be taken into consideration that Vietnam was the country which has expanded the size of the free trade area within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

As such, the country’s representatives, particularly entrepreneurs across different economic sectors, will make contributions to the success of the 6th forum, thus increasing its prestige./.

Themed, “The Opportunities for the Far East in a World under Transformation,” the Eastern Economic Forum 2021 will take place on 2–4 September in Vladivostok on the Far Eastern Federal University campus.

The Eastern Economic Forum was established by decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin in 2015 to support the economic development of Russia’s Far East and to expand international cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region.

Events at the Forum traditionally took place in the form of panel sessions, roundtables, televised debates, business breakfasts, and business dialogues devoted to Russia’s relationships with various countries.

The Forum business programme includes a number of business dialogues with leading partner countries in the Asia-Pacific region, and with ASEAN, a key integration organization uniting dynamically developing nations in Southeast Asia.
