Sputnik v Krymu radio will organize live broadcasts from Yalta International Economic Forum. The on-site studio will feature interviews with the administration of the Republic of Crimea, federal ministries and agencies, as well as foreign investors on 20–22 April. State-of-the-art facilities will make it possible to stream interviews directly from the venue.
In 2017, international news agency Russia Today became the general media partner of YIEF. Its resources in Crimea – Sputnik v Krymu radio and website RIA Novosti (Crimea) – as well as Prime business news agency will become official partners of the event.
The Third Yalta International Economic Forum will be held on 20–22 April. It will be attended by up to 1,500 participants, including investors from 40 countries, representatives of federal and local authorities, and Sevastopol city authorities. The organizers believe the combined value of business agreements signed at the Forum will double from 2016.
YIEF-2016 was held from 14 to 16 April, and was attended by more than 1,000 people from 26 countries. Twelve investment agreements were signed at YIEF worth a total of RUB 70 billion.
