VLADIVOSTOK, September 5. /TASS/. The agreements signed at the Eastern Economic Forum [EEF 2015] have totalled 1.3 trillion roubles, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Trutnev told a briefing on Saturday.
"The question how many agreements have been signed and their total sum has been asked very often. Honestly, we’ve not expected this sum. There have been a total of about 80 agreements to the sum of 1.3 trillion roubles," he said.
Trutnev said that "investors are interested in working in the Far East, which is most important." "This interest should be transformed into assets, money, which will come to the Far East regions," the deputy premier said.
"Speaking about the forum results, I am confident we have picked correct time and place," he said. "The demand for participation in the forum was above the capacities. If the forum is of demand and if investors are coming here to sign contracts - then, it is important for the Far East, for Vladivostok, for the entire country."
The deputy prime minister said in a month Russia would begin preparations for the second forum, which will take place in a year.
