“In 2013 China’s investments in Russia amounted to $4 billion. If there is the growth, this year they should be over $4 billion. We should be guided approximately by this figure in the future - $4-5 billion per year. As for Siberia, I believe that we’ll be able to find projects of $1 million annually,” Demidenko said.The parties are working out 25 projects, which can be realised with the participation of Chinese investors in Siberia and the Far East. Another 22 projects are now being implemented and technical documents are being prepared over four projects, he said.
