KHABAROVSK, November 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev hope that after the APEC summit in the Russian city of Vladivostok in 2012 a centre of Asia Pacific development will be formed in Russia’s Far East.
Medvedev said he was sure the 2012 APEC summit will be held at a very high level. But it does not mean, he added, that as soon as the summit is over Russia may afford to relax. “I hope that the active work will be continued, including in terms of building relations with neighboring countries,” he said at a meeting of the presidium of the Russian State Council.
The president called to implement large-scale economic projects in the Far East jointly with foreign partners. “The summit of the Asia Pacific Economic Community is only the beginning of the road towards creating a strong and competitive Russian centre of development in Asia Pacific,” he said. “It is necessary to modernize infrastructure, first of all, transport infrastructure. Priority attention should be paid to projects targeting to improve transport service between regions, to consolidate them into a united country.”
