“The cultural program is an essential and one of the most important components of the Eastern Economic Forum, which is of great interest to the participants of the EEF, guests, media representatives, as well as residents of the city and the region. This year the format is especially relevant for our region, as the Primorskiy Territory celebrates its 80th anniversary, and the participation of eight neighboring regions in the concert program will become a real holiday on the eve of the main date,” - Vice-Governor of Primorye Konstantin Mezhonov said.

This year the main “mainland” stage will be located on the Sports Embankment. On this site, concerts for everyone will be held from 12 to 16 of September.

“Concerts of collectives, which by right can be called “a musical signature of Primorye”, will become a bright accent in the list of festive events dedicated to the anniversary of Primorye,” - the head of the department Vladimir Sokolov said.

We remind that the Eastern Economic Forum was established by the Decree of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin to promote the accelerated development of the economy of the Far East and the expansion of international cooperation in the APR.
