The Far Eastern Economic Forum: Q&A

Posted by

Readers are invited to pose questions at this important regional event

Chris Devonshire-Ellis, the Chairman of Dezan Shira & Associates, will be attending the Far Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok from the 5-8 of September. The forum focusses on Russia’s trade, investment and development relations with the Asian region, and is an essential part of understanding the developing regional dynamics and Russia’s position within them.

The Greater Eurasian Partnership: Pathways To Economic Development
Russia Chinese Cooperation In A New Age
Russia-India Forum
Russia-ASEAN Forum
