BEIJING, August 12. /TASS/. Chinese investors and companies assign high priority to the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) to be hosted by Russia in September, Deputy Secretary-General of China Overseas Development Association He Zhenwei told TASS on Friday.
"We attach great importance to this event (EEF) since Russian leaders are expected to be there. As far as companies are concerned, they expect to acquire better understanding of the regional policy pursued by Russia and specific features of Advance Development Territories (ADT) operations on the Forum sidelines," He Zhenwei said. "Chinese companies also hope to meet heads of Russian regions and establish contacts with them. One more task is to find business partners," he added.
Companies also intend to examine specific investment projects during the EEF, He Zhenwei said. "We need specific investment projects on construction of new hubs, upgrade of transport facilities, construction of roads and enterprises," he added.
The second Eastern Economic Forum will be held in Vladivostok on September 2-3.
