Key moments

Western money will end up there as long as there is an attitude of trust. It is high time we got it together and, at the upper end, do everything possible to cultivate positive relations with our neighbours to the south and make major investments. It is also our main hope that this money is invested directly into the region. Our colleagues from the southern countries shouldn’t fret about owing assets in our country. Nothing bad will happen.
Artem Volynets
We, the development corporation, the structures for which we are responsible, the development fund for the Far East and Transbaikal, the structures we’ve formed with the Chinese investment corporation, and the joint fund, all should aim to raise funds and private investment. The scale of this is enormous.
Vladimir Dmitriev
The Far East has matured towards a more headlong state policy with respect to subsurface resource management, especially in regards to solid mineral resources.
Vitaly Nesis
The central government (federal government) has to put lots of money into transportation infrastructure so that business people can come. I hope that the outdated legislation that has been hindering development of local business will be finally cleared up.
