About the Far East of Russia

Today Russian Far East is the territory of competitive advantages, the main of which is the rich natural potential, proximity to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, the availability of territories for economic development. The Far Eastern Federal District includes large cities such as Anadyr, Blagoveshchensk, Birobidzhan, Vladivostok, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Magadan, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Khabarovsk, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Yakutsk. The population of the region is over 6 million people.

One of the features of the territory of the Russian Federation is the presence of 11 time zones, approximately 11.4 hours in longitude. Vladivostok city (Far Eastern Federal District (FEFD), where the creation of the Far Eastern section of IEEE is planned, is located about 5000 km away from Novosibirsk, the administrative center of the Siberian Federal District (SFO) where the Siberian Section of IEEE has already been established. The time difference between the two Federal districts is 3 hours. This fact affects the degree of involvement of the FEFD in the activities of the Siberian Section of IEEE. Another reason for poor interaction may be that the work of the Siberian Section of IEEE is aimed at solving local-level problems, which is confirmed by the fact that there have been practically no activities in the Far East under the aegis of the Siberian Section of IEEE for the last 10 years.

The Far East is famous for large modern enterprises constantly in search of the latest developments. It is important to note that one of the main factors of the development of the region is the contribution of both investments and scientific potential.

A little about Vladivostok. Vladivostok is among the ten most up and coming cities of the world, as determined by the special UNESCO Commission. Of all the European-style cities it is the closest to the Asian Pacific region. Vladivostok is the capital and the largest city of Primorye and, of course, one of the most interesting and remarkable cities of Russia. The city is located on a range of hills, which on one side borders the Pacific Ocean and the other forests. Vladivostok is major industrial, transport, scientific and cultural center and biggest ocean port of Russia on the coast of Pacific Ocean.
