The creation of sports centres in the Far East will be discussed at the Eastern Economic Forum

The Eastern Economic Forum will discuss the creation of sports centers in the Far East. This was announced by the Minister of Sports of the Russian Federation, Oleg Matytsin, according to the press service of Roscongress.

"The Far East is one of the strategic regions for the development of sports. We see a large number of competitions held in the Asia-Pacific region: Korea, China, Japan, other countries, and the need to adapt to prepare for them," he said.

During his visit, Matitsyn also met with Oleg Kozhemyako, head of the Primorye Territory, and discussed the creation of a sports cluster at Far Eastern Federal University on Russky Island. He also checked the training conditions of the Greco-Roman and women's wrestling, judo, boxing, swimming, archery, basketball 3×3, triathlon and badminton teams in Vladivostok, and visited Khabarovsk. There he met with the Olympic teams in fencing, trampoline jumping and mountain biking.

It is worth noting that more than 20 teams are currently conducting the final stage of preparations for the Summer Olympics in the Far East.

The VI Eastern Economic Forum will be held on 2-4 September in Vladivostok.
