BEIJING, November 10. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will on Monday attend the 22nd meeting of the heads of state and government of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum opening in Beijing, whose first day will be dedicated to contacts with business circles.
Putin will in particular speak at the APEC business summit section dedicated to the significance of the Asia-Pacific region (APR) for Russia.

APEC leaders are expected to adopt a declaration after the summit, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said.
