Foreign delegations continue to confirm their participation in the fifth Eastern Economic Forum which will be held in September on Russky Island. Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Italian Republic Pasquale Terracciano spoke about the plans of representatives of Italy for the first time to visit the site of the EEF-2019.

During the meeting the Ambassador noted that Italy is considering the opportunity to visit the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok for the first time. The diplomat praised the quality and level of international events held in Russia, noting their role in the development of cooperation between the countries.
