KOMSOMOLSK-ON-AMUR, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev considers the development of the Far East export potential one of the priorities of the region’s strategy.
Speaking at a session of the government commission on the social and economic development of the Far East, Medvedev said, “One of the variants of the Far East development is to export goods to the Asia-Pacific Region and to create new plants.”
The premier cited China as an example. China is the largest world market, he said, adding, “None waits for us with open arms. We should become competitive, clear and open.”
Medvedev said, “It is necessary to create assembly line production, which is in demand abroad, first of all. Thus, it is necessary to create special zones for such lines.”
“This issue is difficult and I’d like everyone to be involved in its resolution,” he added.
Medvedev called for solving the problem of professional personnel in the region and pursuing an effective migration policy. “We shouldn’t make nervous our people,” he said, adding, “It is necessary to put forth working models to develop the Far East without any illusions.”
