BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have made huge progress in the implementation of their roadmap for economic cooperation over the past year, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in his opening remarks to the Russia-ASEAN ministerial meeting on Monday.
“Over the past year we have managed to make huge progress, including that in the implementation of the roadmap for economic and trade cooperation,” he said. “We’ve paid greater attention to humanitarian and cultural cooperation. In May the Russia-ASEAN Youth Summit took place for the first time.”
“It is clear that the potential of deeper cooperation has not been tapped yet,” Lavrov said. “We seek productive work.”
It is expected that the Russia-ASEAN ministerial meeting will consider regional security, counteraction to terrorism and transnational crime, development of concrete measures to expand trade, economic and investment cooperation.
Delegates plan to focus on promising plans for innovation and high technologies and joint projects in space, nanobiotechnologies, energy and education.
