VLADIVOSTOK, November 2 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Audit Chamber Chairman Sergei Stepashin in Vladivostok will check the use of the facilities built before the APEC summit, which took place here in September.
The chief auditor will also inspect some sites included in the programme, but the construction of which was not completed in time for various reasons.
Stepashin told reporters when he arrived in Vladivostok that he would hold a meeting to discuss water supply for Russky Island. Under discussion will be the work of the desalination system and the possibility to build a water supply line from the mainland. The meeting will also discuss the construction of the second part of the all-Russia children's centre Ocean.
The Primorsky Territory’s Governor Vladimir Miklushevsky already at the airport informed Stepashin that the construction of summit facilities was in the concluding phase. The work is underway to complete the construction of the opera and ballet theatre, which will be one of the best in Russia. Stage equipment will be installed there soon, and an artistic director for the theatre is already found, the governor said.
The public's opinions were taken into consideration to make the facilities comfortable for local residents. The special working group, including public representatives, worked out proposals for the further development and the use of the summit facilities.
