BEIJING, October 20. /TASS/. Russia and the Asia Pacific countries should join efforts in developing trade and economic cooperation, Yury Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister and presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, said on Thursday.

"Development of logistical opportunities of the Far East creates new paths and changes the transport logistics of the world," he added.
