Kinross attends 2018 Eastern Economic Forum in Russia

Kinross Russia recently attended the fourth annual Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok, Russia. This was Kinross’ 4th year participating in the forum.

The EEF brings together international investors, Russian businesses, and federal and local governments to build and strengthen relationships to enhance Russian Far East region’s economic potential. 

Claude Schimper, Regional Vice-President, Russia, participated in two panel sessions focused on furthering incentives to attract geological exploration and mining in Russia’s Far East.

While attending the Forum, the Chukotka Mining and Geological Company (CMGC), part of Kinross group of companies, and the Government of Chukotka signed a Letter of Intent to provide financing for the construction of a sports complex in Pevek, the most northeastern port-city of Russia.

“Kinross is pleased to provide the financial support to develop this sports complex in Pevek,” said Claude Schimper, Regional Vice-President, Russia. “This investment is another example of our productive cooperation with the Government of Chukotka in supporting local community development while promoting a healthy lifestyle.”

Kinross also had a booth at the Forum that was well attended by Company stakeholders, government officials and event participants.
