VLADIVOSTOK, September 3 /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Vladivostok, the Russian Far East, from China. He will take part in the work of the Eastern Economic Forum and other events on Friday.
According to Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov, the investment attractiveness of Russia’s far eastern region will be one of the subjects of Putin’s speech on Friday.
The president will meet veterans of the Russian oil and gas industries ahead of their professional holiday. He will be present at a document signing ceremony that will take place at the forum and will have a brief meeting with China’s vice-premier who is going to represent China at the Eastern Economic Forum.
Putin will also visit the Far Eastern Oceanarium. He went there last year and was very much displeased that the facility’s construction was lagging behind schedule.
From Vladivostok, the Russian head of state will fly to the Republic of Khakasiya to inspect the construction of new housing for people who suffered from wild fires in April this year.
