To promote business initiatives in the Far Eastern regions, we have established priority development areas with incentives for companies, for launching new production facilities. We created the Free Port of Vladivostok, the area with unique customs and tax regime. We are implementing large-scale social, infrastructural, educational and scientific programmes and projects, aimed at supporting export and technological modernization. All this opens wide prospects for partnership, trade and long-term investments, as well as for mastering modern, useful forms and models of cooperation, including those with multilateral structures like EurAsEc, SCO, APEC.»
