The events were attended by: First Deputy Minister of Health of the Russian Federation Viktor Fisenko; Federal Medical-Biological Agency Head Veronika Skvortsova; Union Minister of Health of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar Thet Khaing Win; Sakhalin Region Governor Valery Limarenko; Chairman of the Subcommittee on Medicines, Development of the Pharmaceutical and Medical Industry of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation for Health Protection Alexander Petrov; Russian Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare Head Alla Samoylova; Acting Director of the Research Institute of Health of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Olga Kobyakova; General Director of the Federal State Budgetary Institution National Medical Research Radiological Centre of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation and Chief Oncologist of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Andrey Kaprin; State Museum of Sports Director, Deputy Chairwoman of the Commission on Physical Culture and Promotion of a Healthy Lifestyle of the Russian Public Chamber, and Scientific Director of the Institute of Sports Management and Law of the National Research University Higher School of Economics Elena Istyagina-Eliseeva; All-Russian Society of Haemophilia President and Co-chairman of the All-Russian Union of Patients Yury Zhulev; Association of European Businesses CEO Tadzio Schilling; Deputy Chairman of the Government and Minister of Health of the Primorsky Region Anastasia Khudchenko; and Scientific Director of Expert Healthcare (North-West, Siberia, and the Far East) and Expert of the Russian Federation Council’s Social Policy Committee Ruslan Dreval, among others.

Participants in the session ‘Open Dialogue on Medicine: Personnel, Technologies, and Opportunities in the New World’ spoke about advanced Russian domestic developments in medicine that create new opportunities for treating and preventing diseases. “Many of the scientific developments that are already being tested seem like science fiction to us today, but will soon become routine and part of daily practice. Our medical science is developing at a colossal pace. Further evidence of this was the development of the world’s first coronavirus vaccine, which is successfully being used today in many countries around the world. Russian scientists have once again proved that they have every right to be at the forefront of medical science, but our ambitions are not limited to vaccines. We are actively working on the export of medical technologies and education,” Kobyakova said.

Petrov moderated the session ‘Drug Security: Strategic Course of Social Policy in the Far East. Challenges and Opportunities’: “Today, we can say with certainty that the unique drug labelling system we have built is working and working efficiently. Today, consumers can and should become the main controllers and participate in building a drug security system. Each package of medicine can be checked. A few years ago, we could only dream of such powerful protection against counterfeit,” he said.

The session ‘Age and Image as Part of Social Attitude Towards Culture and Traditions’ touched upon such issues as preventive medicine, anti-age medicine, as well as disease prevention and promoting the principles of a healthy lifestyle. The meeting was held as part of the Health & Beauty project, which the Roscongress Foundation presented at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2022. “The Health & Beauty project will become an integral part of the top business events organized by the Roscongress Foundation. In addition, this year we will launch a series of thematic meetings dedicated to the topic of health and beauty, as well as hold roundtables with leading experts in the medical and cosmetic industry,” said Anastasia Stolkova, First Deputy CEO for Development and Director of the Roscongress Foundation’s Healthcare Directorate.

The organizer of the Eastern Economic Forum is the Roscongress Foundation.
