Prikhodko said that cooperation in priority areas such as finance, energy, environment, reaction to emergency situations, public health, education and regional inter-relationship would be part of the forum’s agenda. "The delegates to the summit will also discuss ways of improving its work and will exchange views on urgent international and regional problems," Prikhodko stressed.
The delegates are expected to adopt a number of joint documents designed to promote cooperation in infrastructure development and strengthen the EAS potential in fighting regional security threats.
