Putin considers Far East’s development an absolute priority

Moscow, Sep 3 (Prensa Latina) President Vladimir Putin said at a plenary session of the Eastern Economic Forum running in Vladivostok that the advanced development of the Far East is an absolute priority for the country's authorities.

‘This is the Government’s responsibility and common work in the regions, at all levels, of our major companies, both state-run and private participation,’ the head of State stressed during the meeting in which some 4,000 delegates from more than 65 countries are participating.

The president acknowledged that the advanced development of Russia’s Far East is a unique task by its complexity, but ‘at the same time, it is one of the most promising areas of work for large global companies, medium businesses and new entrepreneurs.’

According to Putin, the development of the country’s vast and distant region is a challenge for everyone, especially young specialists and experienced professionals, TASS news agency informed.

He recalled that amid the difficult conditions related to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, Russian authorities continued the implementation of the plans for these territories and the implementation of such projects even increased.

As part of those achievements, Putin also highlighted the industrial growth of about 20 percent, twice the pace of all Russia.
