VLADIVOSTOK, September 4. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has stressed the important role of strengthening Russia’s relations with the Asia-Pacific region that remains a driving force in world economic growth.
"I’m sure that despite the current problems the Asia-Pacific Region countries will no doubt remain a driver of the global economy and an important market for goods and services and strengthening relations with the countries of this region is of strategic importance for Russia," Putin stressed.
Russia, which has huge resources, is capable of ensuring enhanced growth of the region’s economy, Putin noted. Creation of a so-called energy bridge is one of the key tasks for Russia and the Asia-Pacific Region countries, he added.
The Eurasian integration opens new possibilities for the mutually beneficial cooperation in trade and cooperation of the Asia-Pacific Region, he said.
