VLADIVOSTOK, July 3 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is expected to continue familiarization with the facilities that have been built in Vladivostok to host a summit conference of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum /APEC/, due to convene in two months’ time.
The itinerary of his familiarization trip includes a ride on the Aeroexpress train that links the city center with the Knevichi airport.
At the moment, Aeroexpress is operating in the trial test mode, and a regular passenger service will be launched in the middle of this month. Trains between the city and the airport will cruise every hour.
The Prime Minister’s working day will begin with a visit to the All-Russia Children’s Recreation Camp Okean. Its construction began in January 1974 and the gala opening took place August 17, 1984.
A major fire destroyed most building on the camp in November 1993 and its restoration began in 1996.
The Okean of today is a comprehensive social and educational enterprise that runs a number of theme programs, like “Russia’s Young Leaders’, ‘Intellect’, ‘A Business Express’, or ‘My Federation’. All of them aim to develop a spirit of leadership, creativity and intellectual potential of adolescent Russians aged eleven to seventeen years old.
Upon completing a tour of the Okean, Medvedev will take a ride on the Aeroexpress to the airport where from he will begin the next leg of his working trip to the Far-East. Before boarding the jet, he will inspect the international terminal of the Knevichi airport.
His next destination is Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the administrative center of the insular Sakhalin region where he will lead a conference on the social and economic development of the region and will get familiarized with a number of infrastructural facilities.
Medvedev visited the region last time in November 2010 when he held the office of Russia’s President. He then made a trip to Kunashir, one of the islands of the Southern Kuriles chain.
