International law firms in Asia, and elsewhere, should consider attending the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Russia, on 6-7 September 2017. 

 A previous article in this blog identified the Russian Far East as one of the five Asian legal markets that we expect to provide the best growth opportunities for law firms through 2021 and beyond. (The others are the Philippines, Vietnam, India, and Iran.) We also reported, on 30 October 2016, how Korean investment and interest in the region has remained high.

Three recent developments are noteworthy:


The Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East will hold the next annual Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok on 6-7 September 2017. Registration and other information about the conference is available at the Eastern Economic Forum website. We recommend this event to law firms, especially in southern and eastern Asia, that have clients who might be interested in investment or business operations in the Russian Far East. Not only is it a good networking opportunity at a very high level, but it also can give law firms the up-to-date market intelligence and insights that could be tremendous added value in the advice that they give to their clients.
