Given that the United States has unleashed a trade war against China, and tough economic restrictions have been imposed on Russia, now is the right time to strengthen trade, economic and military-defense ties between Moscow and Beijing.So it really happens. At the talks between the head of the Russian Federation and the chairman of the PRC, Xi Jinping called Vladimir Putin a dear friend, and according to the Chinese protocol, this is a sign of the highest trust. Yes, and in the military exercises "Vostok-2018", which are now taking place in Primorye parallel to the WEF, together with the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the army of the Celestial Army takes part.
From an economic point of view, Russian-Chinese cooperation is also reaching a new level. Since 2010, China has been Russia's main and largest partner with a trade turnover of two countries of $ 200 billion. And the volume of direct investment from Chinese business structures in the economy of the Russian Federation reaches 12 billion.
On the other hand, the Russian negotiations with another major representative of the APR, Japan, were also very productive. According to the Secretary General of the Japanese Cabinet of Ministers Yoshihide Suga, the meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was very informative. A positive trend in the growth of business cooperation between Moscow and Tokyo by 20% compared with the same period last year reflects the general warming of relations between the two countries.
The further strengthening of Russian-Chinese relations and economic cooperation between Russia and Japan has a positive effect on the development of the entire Far Eastern macro-region of the Russian Federation. Today, 30% of all foreign investment falls on the Primorsky Territory, whereas five years ago they were an order of magnitude less. Today in the Far East about a thousand and three hundred investment projects worth a total of $ 60 billion are being implemented. Moreover, regional economic preferences allow investors to increase the profitability of their projects by 10-12%.
The issue of the development of the Far East is so important that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally met with foreign investors and businessmen in the WEF fields. As well as the president visited the enterprise forming shipyard shipyard "Star" and talked with her shipbuilders. He said that this is the largest enterprise of this kind, calling the creation of the shipyard Zvezda an all-Russian project. Taking part in the groundbreaking ceremony for the first tanker Aframaks, Vladimir Putin stressed the fact that now Russia will be able to build large-tonnage vessels itself, and not buy them abroad, as it was before.
Trying to further stimulate the development of the entire Primorye macroregion, the Russian leader proposed to implement the following strategy in the Far East: specialists who wished to move here for permanent residence are expected tax benefits and high wages, and special economic support will be provided to entrepreneurs who create additional jobs in the region .
Development of the Far East is a priority task for the Russian government at the moment. Russian President Vladimir Putin, well aware of the significance of the economic growth of Primorsky Krai for the further successful development of the whole country as a whole, devotes a lot of time and attention to this issue. That is why now he is personally involved in the work of the IV Eastern Economic Forum, which takes place in Vladivostok and will last until September 13.
