MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. Russia and Japan have chosen Voronezh, in western Russia, for implementing a pilot project on urban realm improvement using the Japanese technologies, Japanese Minister for Economic Cooperation with Russia Hiroshige Seko said in an interview with TASS.
The minister said the agreement may be signed during the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Japan in December.
"Experts of both countries on urban planning compared different Russian cities in the population size or tasks before each city and selected a city there it would be most necessary or useful to introduce the Japanese technology. The overall assessment showed that Voronezh fits as the first pilot city," Seko said.
Over the past years, the Japanese companies have been boosting exports of urban realm improvement technologies, including in creating efficient transport networks, smart city, managing utilities system and protecting nature in the city.
