MOSCOW, August 18. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe and President of the Republic of Korea Park Geun-hye will attend the second Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) to be held in Vladivostok on September 2-3, Russian Minister for Far East Development Alexander Galushka said on Thursday. Leaders of three nations will participate in the panel session - the key event of the Forum, he added.
"The plenary session to be attended by Russian President, Prime Minister of Japan and President of the Republic of Korea will be the key event of the Forum. Ex-Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd will moderate the plenary session," Galushka said.
"We also expect a fairly high-ranking delegation from China led by Deputy Chairman of China’s parliament with the vice premier rank. Such countries as India, Vietnam, Laos and Nicaragua will also send delegations led by members of the government and headed by relevant ministers," he added.
241 chief executives of Russian companies and top managers of certain foreign companies confirmed their participation in the Forum, the minister said. 2,440 individuals from 32 nations confirmed their participation in the EEF by now.
The Russian side will present 111 Far Eastern projects at the EEF with total investments over 2.2 trillion rubles ($34.6 bln), Galushka said.
"However, we have all grounds to believe that the number of agreements and the amount will grow because preparation of certain new agreements for the forum is highly intensive in these two weeks," he added.
