The main objective of the Forum is to discuss topical issues of the cross-border regions of the Russian Federation and the neighbouring countries as well as support to their development through cooperation projects in the areas of business, civil society development and interaction of the authorities.

The Forum is an open information and communication platform for all participants in the cross-border cooperation. This platform supports exchanging opinions as well as meeting directors from the ministries of Russia and the neighbouring countries, leaders of local governments and regional authorities, non-profit organisations, financial institutions and businesses.

The programme includes seminars and round tables focused on discussing the most important issues on cross-border cooperation, export development, logistics, tourism, and emergency response.
